As autumn arrives in the Finnish capital, chilly weather hints at an even colder season soon to come. We relish the crisp fall air, bringing you eye-catching views of colourful seasonal scenery.

Deep reds, bright oranges and pale yellows replace the greens of summer in Helsinki parks and neighbourhoods as autumn progresses and the leaves change. Although the warm weather of July and August is fast fading to a distant memory, we’re still outside enjoying life and landscapes in the capital.

Vibrant transition
