Feel the Breeze
Surviving the long Finnish winter, with its sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfall, is actually quite easy… No, you don’t just remain indoors. All you need is the right clothing and footwear, and you will soon be heading outdoors to enjoy the wide variety of winter activities on offer.
Depending on location, winter in Finland begins in November and can last up to five months, with temperatures ranging from a balmy zero to a lung-freezing ¬minus 35. You may be suspicious, but we assure you that with the right layers of clothing, gloves, hat and boots, you can easily bear the most severe of arctic conditions.
You may never have expected to own any thermal underwear, but, more surprisingly, you probably never expected to be grateful for owning a pair either. However, when the temperature drops below minus 20 and the wind adds that chill factor, you will consider them to be the best purchase you have ever made.
