Outdoor Express – Your ticket to nature

Outdoor Express takes you from the Tampere city centre by bus directly to nature and back. The service is intended for both locals and tourists. The goal is to provide an easy opportunity for hiking for everyone.

Outdoor Express, which operates on weekends between 3.5.-1.9.2024, targets the Seitseminen, Helvetinjärvi and Isojärvi national parks. Upon arrival, you’ll have a few hours to go hiking and enjoy nature. After hiking, you can enjoy refreshments at the cafes and restaurants in the parks. You can also pack your tent and ride back the next day.

Seitseminen National Park
The ancient majestic forests of the southern Suomenselkä region rustle in Seitseminen National Park, and over half of the national park consists of vital breeding grounds for birds. At the Seitseminen Nature Centre, you can learn more about nature and enjoy a cup of coffee. You can also rent a bicycle or hiking equipment from the nature centre. The Kovero Heritage Farm introduces visitors to life in the forests of Seitseminen in the early 20th century. At Kovero, traditional cultural landscapes are preserved using old-fashioned methods. Come and enjoy the treasure trove of nature and forest culture and learn about them!
