Places around Helsinki to camp, reachable by car

Post by AntyScience » Thu Aug 03, 2017 5:40 pm

Hi! I like to do astrophotography. However, Helsinki has too much light pollution for this. Therefore, I'm looking for places I can drive to (and preferably set up a tent) that are easy to reach by car (as I have 60kg of equipment).

I know of Nuuksio, but the trees tend to get in the way when taking pictures of stars :)

Thanks a lot!

According to that map I'd go to Luhanka for astrophotography. Maybe Kainuu, but that would at least triple the travel time. Pollux arranges star gazing trips to Porkkala, so I suppose there the skies are already dark enough.

You could try Oittaa, don't know about the light pollution there.

Thanks a lot! I did not know of Pollux, that's great information! Oittaa sounds good, I'll check it out! :)
