Finland during autumn: fall foliage and double auroras

Finland during autumn: fall foliage and double auroras

A gallery of the Nordic country in the fall season

From September until November, Finland undergoes a beautiful transformation as the entire country turns red, brown, and yellow. Watching the colours of the leaves change is such a spectacular sight that Finns even have a word for the fall foliage: ruska.

Although people mostly think of winter and snow when they hear “Finland”, the autumn season is just as special. In fact, people from all over the world travel to Northern Finland during September and October to witness the autumn leaves.

During this period, tourists and citizens often hike, canoe, fish, mountain bike, and pick forest fruits. In other words, they take part in activities that allow them to be surrounded by nature.

Another widely held misconception is that auroras are most often seen during the cold and snowy months of the year. In reality, the best time to witness and admire this natural light display is during autumn and spring. During the fall, Finland’s lakes create what is known as beautiful “double aurora” as the night sky’s reflection can be seen in the water.

With the ruska, forest fruits, and double auroras, it is not surprising that autumn is one of the most breathtaking seasons of the year.
