We as a LikeFinland team, which this time included one adult and two children, had a fun summer day at Treetop Adventure Huippu in Leppävaara, Espoo - 15 km from Helsinki city center!
In Finland there are dozens of treetop adventure parks but they are all different from each other! At Treetop Adventure Huippu it is possible to arrange business events, children’s birthdays, and bachelor or bachelorette parties.
Instructors, Sami and Abbe, told us that Treetop Adventure Huippu has renewed the green, blue, and black courses this year to come up to the adventurers' expectations. The different colors represent the different degrees of difficulty: the green course is the easiest and the black course is the most challenging. There are also blue and red courses available in the middle.
One of the new features this year is that the starting instruction will soon be on video. It is important to listen to the instruction carefully before starting the climbing!
To climb at Huippu doesn't require any previous experience.
The harnesses are checked carefully by the instructors for safety. Treetop Adventure Huippu has been constructed and operates according to the European standards.
At Huippu there are nets, tunnels, bridges, and tightropes. Some of the courses take the adventurers between 20 and 60 feet above the ground!
We started the adventure at the green course, which is the easiest one. Four of the courses start from the main tower, another green one from the other tower nearby, and then there are green and blue courses at the upper part of the park. To get there, you can walk up the wooden stairs in the terrain.
The green course and the blue course are suitable for adventurers over 120 cm (3 feet, 11 inches) tall, whereas the red course and the black course are designed for 140 cm (4 feet, 7 inches) and taller.
There is also a course for small children, with the height of 100-120 cm, near the customer service building of Huippu.

As an adult, I enjoyed the Tarzan jump the most. It is a free fall jump. Remember to take hold of the net so that you won't be left hanging in the middle! If you don’t catch the net in time, there is no need to worry, because according to instructor Nana, there are ways to get out of that tricky situation!
I also went for the black course which is the most challenging one. Climbing at Huippu is very good exercise!
When the adventure was over, we bought some ice cream from Huippu’s kiosk and headed to Sello Shopping Mall in Espoo to have something to eat.
Finally, do you know what the Finnish word “Huippu” means?
It means of course the top of the hill! :)
