Guide for fall foliage in Finland

Welcome to experience the spectacular Finnish Foliage

The Finnish foliage, also called as ruska, is a captivating spectacle where nature transforms itself into a vibrant tapestry of colors, painting the landscape with brilliant shades of red, orange, and gold. It's a time when the country adorns itself in its most stunning attire, and as nature changes, so does our approach to clothing. Explore the magic of Finnish foliage while staying warm and cozy with our merino wool staples.

What is the meaning of ruska or foliage?

Ruska is the Finnish term for fall foliage, a word that encapsulates the breathtaking transformation of nature during this season. It's a time when trees shed their leaves, creating a vibrant mosaic of ruska foliage that blankets the forests, mountains, parks and countryside. The foliage phenomenon symbolizes the changing of seasons and the beauty of transition.

What are the best places to witness foliage?

The best places to fully immerse yourself in the fall foliage experience are in some of Finland's most enchanting destinations. Lapland from early September to late October provides an unforgettable glimpse into the Finnish foliage like no other. However, the whole of Finland goes through this magical transition to winter, and places like Nuuksio National Park and Koli National Park offer beautiful foliage displays too.

Can you see the Northern lights in Finland in autumn?

Foliage typically coincides with the onset of darker nights, making it an excellent time for Northern lights viewing. Sightings are subject to several factors, including clear skies and solar activity. Certain regions, like Lapland, provide better chances for witnessing both foliage and the Northern lights in harmony. But be aware, nights can drop below freezing tempatures. A merino base layer is an ideal choice for late night strolls to admire nature's magic while staying warm, dry and comfortable.
