Espoo is the second-largest and the fastest growing city of Finland – part of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. Espoo is Northern Europe’s largest high-tech and innovation hub where science, business and culture meet the wilderness of Nuuksio National Park and the stunning seaside environment.
The city’s innovative spirit, Aalto University, technology hub Otaniemi and international companies attract continuous interest from science, research, investors and business professionals worldwide.
Being located right next to the capital Helsinki means excellent transportation links – Helsinki Airport is just a half an hour drive from Espoo. The capital region has an extensive and affordable public transportation network and since 2017 the west metro has been able to take visitors to Helsinki in just 10 minutes.
Nuuksio National Park, 20 kms from the global company headquarters, is the most visited place in Espoo, offering endless possibilities for nature activities like hiking, fishing and snowshoeing to counterbalance your meeting.
How about a Viking-style cruise to see the rock paintings, rescue suit swimming in the ice cold water or a relaxed visit to the southernmost reindeer park in Finland? In Espoo, you can meet also the friendly Siberian huskies that love your hugs, and raise your adrenaline in a fast dog sled ride. The perfect way to end your day is to have a wilderness dinner by campfire and enjoy the Finnish super food flavours.
