Looking back through our photos of Finland, I’m struck by the texture of the images.It’s a cliché to say that no two snowflakes are the same, or to talk of winter wonderlands, but the reasons behind those tropes come alive in these photos. It’s a mesmerizing sight to see the shape of each individual fleck adding to a veil of glitter across an already fractal landscape. This is a post that can do without many words. I promise stories next time.
These photos were taken on the Kimitoön Islands of Finland in the South West peninsula. The area is mostly Swedish speaking. Kimitoön is translated as Kemiönsaari in Finnish.

We loved every minute of our trip to Finland and can’t wait to go back – perhaps next time in summer so we can see it in a different light (although we really enjoyed the whole winter wonderland experience). We’ve written about the reasons we loved Helsinki, a little portrait of how the city appeared to us, and a guide to some of the best things to do in Helsinki.
We’ve also written about our time outside of the capital. You can see more photos from the Kimitoon archipelago in this post, and read about the time we went ice skating on a frozen lake! Getting outside of the city made our trip extra special and even though we were only in Finland for a week, it felt like a big adventure.
Have you been to Finland? Let us know what else we should visit next time. We’d love any excuse to go back!
