  1. This looks great! Guess that we have also been on several forest walks with our friend couple. Mostly we are hiking in the national park area of Syöte, Pudasjärvi. Hailuoto is now our favorite, too. It will be more and more in the future since we bought a house there.

    • Hello Ritva.

      Thank You for Your kind words. This forest is near to Mikkeli, three hours by car from Helsinki in Otava. It is said that the spruce forest is scary, but we did found this scary. We have not been in Syöte or in Pudasjärvi, but in Hailuoto yes. I am quite sure that You missed my Hailuoto post. Here:

      Have a good day!

    • Hello Marion.

      I am glad that You love this post. My photos are “old”, dating back about three years from the time when we lived in Mikkeli, which is a small but beautiful town. It is quite safe to walk in our forests and it is just this thing, which we love. Thank You commenting.

      Have a wonderful day!

    • Coucou Maly.

      Je suis content que vous ayez aimé mon poste modeste. C’était peut-être en juillet il y a trois ans. Nous vivions à Mikkeli et cet endroit c’était très proche de Mikkeli à Otava.La distance entre Helsinki et Mikkeli est d’environ 240 km au nord-est. Merci de m’avoir fait un commentaire.

      Bonne journée à vous.

        Alors même en juillet il faisait un peu frais dans la forêt car ton épouse avait besoin d’un blouson
        Belle journée à tous les deux aussi 😀

        • Salut Maly.

          Certains étés sont chauds, d’autres non. À la radio, on nous a dit que cet été, nous avons eu plus de 50 jours lorsque la température a été supérieure à 25 degrés. Ce qui est curieux, c’est que bien au-delà du cercle polaire arctique, certains jours ont eu environ 33 degrés.

          Bises.

              Bonjour Maly. Peut-être, mais pendant des décennies, il y a eu des étés chauds. Surtout que c’était vrai dans les années 30. C’était déjà à cette époque que les gens commençaient à penser au réchauffement climatique pour la première fois en Finlande.

              Bonne journée.

      Yes, it is mushroom. In our forests, everyone has the right to pick mushrooms and berries. In spruce forest there are not so much. Thank You commenting.

    • Hello Deb.

      We have distinctly three types of forests: birch forest, pine forest and spruce forest. In addition to these, three mixed forest. Personally, I love pine forests and then birch forest. These kind of forests needs to grow different soil. Many years ago, we lived by the pine forest. If You have not seen this, then take a look at this post:

  11. It’s quite refreshing to accompany Anja on her walk through this beautiful forest! I love this type of silent forest with its different shades of green, with a lot of undergroth, moss, rocks and stones, with all these kind of pristine pathes – and with mushrooms!^^
    Thanks for showing your forest pictures, Matti! I enjoyed your post very much!

    • Hello Michèle.

      I cannot understand how many things You can see in my photos! It is wonderful. Maybe these forests are too well known to me and thus I am not capable to see them and I am “blind”. Actually, I am half-blind, because I lost the sight of my left eye almost five years ago.

      Thank You very much for Your praising comment. All the best to You and Yours,
      Matti

  15. Is there animals in your forests?? Like deer,bears?? survivor972002@midco.net

    Comment by Mary Ann — July 31, 2018 @ 20:58 | Reply

    • Hello Mary Ann.

      Thank You commenting and making a question. There birds and squirrels. Also foxes, hares and hedgehogs. Deer are rare in this kind of forest, because they cannot find food. Elks might be possible, but they are afraid of man. Reindeers live in the north and bears in deep forests. All this means that it is safe to walk in our forest.

      Have a good day!

  16. Hello (^ ^)
    The green of the fresh forest is wonderful. There seems to be a hot day that has never existed before, but is not the trees of the forest also surprised?
    Please have a nice day.

    Comment by saganhama — August 1, 2018 @ 02:14 | Reply

    • Hello Saganhama.

      Thank You. Nowadays trees are suffering from the heat and lack of rainwater. I do not know how much water, spruces need in a day, but birches need about 1000 liters in a day. The denser the forest, the better they protect each other from the hot sun.

  19. Thank you for sharing these beautiful images. That is one thing I intend to do if I can ever make it to Finland again – wander around in the forest. It seems to me that Finnish forests are much softer and gentler than what we have in my part of Canada. I think more sunlight gets through.

  20. Always a pleasure to visit your blog, Matti! This post made me think of the Swedish saying, Drar til skogen. ( when they intend to be alone!) The serenity and peace found in this nature is something very special. I remember my first glimpse of a Finnish forest. Such a green I had never seen!! It was luminescent!

    • Hello Amanda.

      Yes, go to the forest (Drar til skogen). We people are part of nature, although some people living in towns have forgotten it. On the other hand, man needs peace and serenity in his heart. People who have moved from country to cities, they miss back to the nature. I am glad that you left Your kind comment and thus got us to think about our life on the World. Thank You.
