Nuuksio Now

Weekly update on weather and hiking conditions in Nuuksio National Park

Updated on 17.6.2019

 

Warm days for as long as the weather forecast can tell. You’ll get warm while hiking, but the lakes are very lovely now for a swim, the waters aren’t cold anymore.

Birds are active and some have chicks already. If you’re lucky, you can hear the black-throated loon, which is the sound of summer night in Finland. Also, try to spot the sound of common cuckoo, that’s another sound of summer.

At lakeshores you can spot Finland’s national fish, the european perch.

There are some mosquitoes and blackflies now in the forest. You might want to consider some protection from them, either with clothing or with repellent, but it’s not too bad. A Finnish person probably doesn’t need to use protection for now, if that’s any indication of the situation. 😀

Best Right Now

Warm water in lakes. Plants blooming. Clear lakes sparkling in the sunshine. Birds chirping cheerfully. Warmth of the summer.
