Nuuksio National Park Autumnal Landscape


The first week of September is when autumn begins in Southern Finland. Temperature starts to become cooler and the distinct yellow and red colours of autumn foliage could be seen. To truly enjoy autumn in Finland, a visit to one of their many national parks is a must. My friends and I visited Nuuksio National Park which was located in Espoo.

In finland, it was common to see BBQ pits stationed near body of water. The Finnish people would usually chop their own wood and spend their day at the designated BBQ pits while enjoying the magnificent view present in front of them. To have some fun ourselves, we skipped rocks on lakes too and competed among ourselves to see who had the most amount of skips in a single rock throw.
