The Boreal forest, which is located in Northern Finland, is the world’s biggest territorial biome and makes up the majority of the landscape there. During almost half of the year, this forest is covered in ice, and during that period, it transforms into a paradise on earth. In the winter, temperatures may drop to -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit). Extreme cold causes trees to be blanketed in snow and ice, giving the scene an otherworldly appearance.
The huge, towering slabs of ice that are plastered against the background of blankets of white create an image that is beautiful and unique to the woods of Northern Finland.
The frozen snow and ice covering the trees create a heavenly image.
An unsettling yet beautiful sensation of life may be felt when walking over the frozen landscape. Everything, even the bushes, rocks, and trees, is covered in a blanket of white, taking on incredible shapes. At other times, they give the impression of a legion of snowmen dispersed across the woods. At other times, they seem to be immobile, alien creatures.
Long towers of ice against a white background provide a magnificent scene in Finland’s woodlands.
It’s astonishing how these trees can freeze into such interesting shapes. Northern Finland, contrary to popular belief, has surprisingly high levels of humidity, and the surrounding air is damp and thick. There is always a little dampness in the air, regardless of the season. Water droplets are abundant in the sky due to the high humidity. These water droplets make touch with the trees as the temperature drops below zero, and as a result, the droplets continue to freeze onto the trees.
The forest comes to life during the day and the snow sparkles in the sun.
The Riisitunturi National Park is an excellent location from which to see this winter beauty. It is well-known for the stunning winter scenery that it offers. You may take a lovely walk through the cottages that are dispersed over the open wilderness there, and at the end of your journey, you will find yourself in a landscape filled with stunning natural ice sculptures. Kussamo airport, which is the nearest airport, is located around 60 kilometers from the park.
