Nuuksio Now: Week 42, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 42, between 15.-21.10.2018.

We have spectacular fall colours this year here in the south as well, there’s lots of mushrooms in the forest and the weather is nice, so you should definitely get out this week!

The weather is strangely warm for this time of year. The forest smells beautiful like it does in the fall from the fallen leaves. The air is very clear. These kinds of things make hiking in the fall so special.
