Nuuksio Now: Week 50, 2018

Here’s what Nuuksio National Park is like right now, during week 50, between 10.-16.12.2018.

We may only get six hours of daylight, but if you spend them outside in the nature, they are very good six hours.

The week starts with a bit of rain on Monday, which turns to snow in the night and Tuesday morning. The snow should stay on the ground for the rest of the week, which means that it should be a very lovely time to be outside.
