Welcome to visit Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station!


Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station provides a meeting place close to nature by a lake in the middle of forests. Besides the educational and scientific use of the University of Helsinki itself, the station facilities can be hired by external groups for educational events,courses, meetings, parties etc.


Year-round activities


In summer, the station can accommodate 170 persons, and in winter, 100 persons. During the summer months, the station is often full of scientists, teachers and students, but at the other times of year we can easily serve as a meeting place for large groups. The year-round accommodation is arranged in shared flats with six two-person bedrooms and a shared kitchen, lounge and shower. The historical wooden houses are usually reserved only for summer accommodation of the university staff and students.

The station provides year-round dining for 100 persons at a time, and for up to 250 persons by arranging multiple turns for dining. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee, and dinner are served on working days in the summer. In the winter, dinner is available only for groups on request.

Two traditional saunas by the Lake Kuivajärvi can be reserved year-round. Two other saunas are located in the new buildings and are mainly used in the winter.

The Old Dining Hall is located in the historical squared courtyard of the station and serves as a year-round place for formal and informal parties. The station kitchen can prepare and serve a choice of exclusive meals for guests. The maximum number of attendants for a dining party is 90 persons.
