What is a Foxtrail City Adventure?

Foxtrail City Adventure is an urban activity for friends, families and groups of all kinds in which the city becomes your playing field as you follow the runaway Fox’s trail. Using the Foxtrail instructions as your guide, teams of 2— 6 persons set out to follow the trail and on their way discover the best highlights and coolest hidden spots of Helsinki!

In order to avoid losing track of the Fox, you will need to use your wits to decipher clues and find hidden messages along the way. Does your team have what it takes to outsmart the cunning fox? The clues are tricky and demand clever thinking and teamwork.

Our Foxtrails

Our trails Louhi and Sampo are a great way to see and get to know Helsinki in just a few hours. Both for first-time visitors and people who (think they) know their Helsinki already: for the more adventurous tourists, Foxtrail is a fun alternative to the traditional city tour, whereas for locals, it presents a chance to rediscover one’s hometown with new eyes.
