Discover Forests Finland

The forests change colour and go from green to orange, then reddish, according to the season. Composed essentially of broad-leaved trees, they become more and more dense towards the north with pines and fir-trees. In the extreme north of the country, the vegetation transforms itself into tundra, a desert with no trees.
