Life in paradise


The atmosphere at the Nuuksio lakeland area is like being in paradise. Situated on the shores of a beautiful lake, Villa Paradise offers its guests not only beautiful scenery but also quality accommodation and activities to suit all tastes. 

Villa Paradise is an atmospheric villa by the lake, where you can spend time with family and friends. The facilities are also ideal for family celebrations and meetings. 

The exceptional atmosphere of Wäinölä, a restaurant and banquet hall, provides a great setting for Kalevala-themed events and celebrations based on Finnish folklore.

"This great place offered our group a perfect weekend. The soul rested and we experienced something truly unique."

Villa Paradise's main building has two double rooms and four twin rooms on a hillside with lake and forest views.

All the routes of the Nuuksio North Gate and the Salmi outdoor recreation area are within easy reach. A 7 km forest trail to Kattila, from where you can take a bus to the Haltian nature centre.

Breakfasts, lunches and dinners for guests of the Villa are available by arrangement. In the restaurant Wäinölä theme dinners, private functions and events.

Beach sauna and hot tub. Swimming all year round.

Nuuksio Taika is located on the western side of Nuuksio National Park. From Helsinki it is about a 45-minute drive.



The flying squirrel is the most unusual mammal in our country. In Nuuksio, the chalk squirrel is quite common compared to the rest of Finland, and it has been chosen as the emblematic animal of Nuuksio National Park.

Seeing a flying squirrel requires a great deal of attention and perseverance, but also luck. The eggs are easier to see: they look like brown or ochre-coloured porridge grains at the base of a tree. Large and old aspen trees in particular are favourite nesting trees for gliding squirrels, as long as they have nest holes packed with woodpeckers.
