Explore the beauty of the Finnish nature on our guided trips
We are based in the small municipality of Kirkkonummi, Known for Nature, where the Boreal Taiga forests meet the Baltic sea. Kirkkonummi locates 30 km west from Helsinki and only one hour from the nearest airport. Still, here you can find a feeling of wilderness!
Forests and lakes dominate the Finnish landscapes. Forests cover 70% of Finland’s surface and there are 168 000 lakes. There are also unique geological formations in Finland shaped by the Ice Ages (eskers, land-up heaval phenomen, roche moutonnée …). The Finnish fauna and flora is a mixture of southern, northern and eastern elements. We are also happy to have four seasons: winter, spring, summer and autumn.
Borearctia’s philosophy is to share our knowledge of the nature values of Finland and of the local history. We will take you to the local Natura 2000 sites, other valuable nature areas or show you the nationally valuable landscape area of Porkkala. We are committed to having a positive impact on nature, society and the economy, leaving a low ecological footprint and honouring local cultures.
See you in Finland!

Would you like to know the story behind the name? Borearctia comes from the Latin name of an extremely rare tiger moth Borearctia menetriesii. You can see it on our logo. The etymology of the name is in the Greek language; “Boreos” refers to the word north and “arkteia” to arctic. “Menestriesii” refers to the French entomologist Édouard Ménétries. As we work with nature, the company name matters!
Borearctia was established in 2018 by two professional biologists. Nature has always been our passion. In fact, we have been working with nature for all our working life. In addition, Borearctia has a pool of nature experts who can guide the groups depending on the theme of the nature trip.
