Nuuksio Now: Week 2, 2019

Snow. Yes. Lot’s of.

Here’s what Nuuksio National Park is like right now, during week 2, between 7.-13.1.2019.

Tuesday promises to bring plenty more snow and after few cloudy days early in the week, we hopefully get some sun as well. That goes brilliantly with the new snow on the trees.

It’s going to be a beautiful week in the forest.
