Ruska is the Finnish word for Autumn leaf color

Ruska is the Finnish word for Autumn leaf color. This amazing natures display is at its best usually in mid-September or at the end of September. This phenomena is triggered by the dropping temperatures and nature begins to prepare for the winter. The Autumn Color truly gets to shine the colder and dryer the nights get, and different trees get different leaf colors from sparkling yellow to warm oranges and fiery red, even with splashes of purple.

Autumn reveals the true leaf colors

Fun to know about Autumn Color Ruska: Did you know that all the trees collect the chlorophyll from the leaf to protect it from the winter. The tones of color are already in the leaf itself, just hiding under all the green during the summer months, Autumn only reveals the true leaf colors. Rovaniemi has many water areas such as rivers and lakes, and many of Rovaniemi accommodations boast in the autumn colored landscapes near light reflecting waters, talk about heavenly.

See millions of stars from a premium class hotel (or, if you're lucky, even the Northern Lights) ✨

✨@glass_resort on the Arctic Circle opens at 30th September.

✨In all probability, there won't be snow by then as the first snow is normally due sometime between October and November. Permanent snow arrives later.
