Nuuksio Now: Week 23, 2018

Here’s what it’s going to be like in Nuuksio National Park during week 23, between 4.-10.6.2018.

Sunny weather continues here in Finland. This week we get a few cooler days, but that just makes those days much better for longer hikes in the national park.

Tuesday, 5th of June, is World Environment Day, a day to encourage awareness for the environment and it’s protection. I think that by enjoying the outdoors, we form a more personal relationship with the environment and so we want to protect it more.

Temperatures: Days from +14°C to 20°C; nights around +8°C
