Finland's four season - Natural Nordic

Finland's four season

Welcome to Finland, a land of four distinct and breathtaking seasons! With each season offering unforgettable experiences, Finland is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

In the spring with the increased light, the country bursts into life with the sound of bird songs and the sweet scent of blooming flowers. The snow melts away to reveal lush green forests and crystal-clear lakes, making it the perfect time to explore the countryside on foot, bike, or even by canoe. Take a stroll in the woods and see the wildlife, migrating of the birds, pick the first sprouts and yearly growth of the wild herbs, and see the berry bushes bloom, or visit a national park to admire the greenness and various natural landscapes.

Summer in Finland is the time to soak up the sun, relax by the lake - often on a summer cottage, and enjoy the long, warm days. The midnight sun, a natural phenomenon where the sun never sets, creates a magical atmosphere and allows for endless outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking, or hiking. And when the night finally comes, gather around a campfire and experience the traditional Finnish sauna with a birch vihta and a swim in a lake, a relaxing must-try activity for anyone visiting the country.

Autumn brings a dramatic change to the landscape as the leaves turn vibrant shades of red, orange, and gold. It's the ideal time to explore the Finnish countryside and marvel at the stunning colors while hiking or while picking berries and mushrooms (as many as 200 edible mushrooms). And as the nights grow longer, it's also the perfect season for Northern Lights watching, as the dark skies provide the ideal backdrop for this natural spectacle.

Finally, the winter in Finland is a true wonderland for anyone who loves snow and winter sports. Cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, and ice-skating are just a few of the activities you can enjoy in the crisp, snowy landscapes. Don't forget about the Finnish tradition of fishing through the ice or winter swimming, which involves taking a dip in an icy lake or sea or a slightly less adventurous alternative just rolling in the snow from sauna – both experiences that will truly awaken your senses!

In conclusion, Finland's four seasons offer a world of natural beauty, adventure, and unforgettable experiences. Whether you're seeking peace and relaxation or adrenaline and excitement, Finland has something to offer every traveler.
