Winter Finland in 25 Photos: Nature Art and Frozen Lakes

Finland has approximately 187.000 lakes. These photos of winter Finland show what a Finnish lake looks like and how it changes during the snow season.

All Finnish lakes normally get an ice cover and later in the winter snow falls on the ice. This makes Finnish lakes a perfect place for all kinds of winter activities from skiing and skating to kick sledding and kiteboarding.

As you know the nature is the best of artists. Look at my 25 nature photos and enjoy the winter in Finland! The photos are taken on Lake Näsijärvi close to Tampere, Western Finland.

This is what a normal winter in Finland looks like and what we are used to having, in all parts of the country.

However it looks like the climate is getting warmer even in Finland and a good ice cover on lakes is no more guaranteed. So before entering a lake in the winter you should always check the conditions.
