Title: Nature and landscape in Finland


1
Nature and landscape in Finland
2
Location on the map
  • Finland is located in northern Europe.
  • Finlands neighbour in east is Russia, in west
    Sweden and in south Estonia.
  • Finland is the sixth biggest country in Europe.

3
Forest
  • Forests cover 77 percent of Finlands ground area
    which is the biggest amount in the world.
  • Where ever you go there are allways trees and
    forests around you.
  • Trees also cover areas inside bigger cities and a
    lot of area in countryside.
  • The forests are basically boreal forests in
    Finland because those trees are adapted to
    Finlands cold winter.

4
Lakes and archipelago
  • There are about 200000 lakes in Finland.
  • The lakes cover ten percent of Finlands area and
    the biggest lake is Saimaa.
  • Finlands archipelago is the biggest in Europe
    and consist of about 40000 islands.
  • During the summer there are a lot of boats on the
    move at archipelago. My grandfather has sailboat
    and we go there fishing and swimming allmost
    every summer.
  • Cruising ships move there even if the ships are
    massive. The ships go back and forth to Sweden
    and Finland.

5
Living nature and environment
  • The biggest mammals in Finland are wolf, bear,
    reindeer, wolverine and elk which all live mostly
    in northern Finland because its so
    sparsely-populated and the cities are small.
  • Wolves and wolverines are endangered and they are
    protected by laws so that they wont die in
    extinction.
  • I have never seen bigger mammals except once I
    saw an elk in Lapland, in northern Finland. Many
    people have seen for example wolves and there are
    some stories that they have killed dogs but
    nobody have proven that wolves have killed people
    since 19th century in Finland.
  • Swamps covered about third of the Finlands area
    long time ago but today swamps are drained into
    farmland which weakens some of the animals chance
    to survive.

6
Landscapes
  • The highest fell in Finland is Haltitunturi which
    is 1324 meters above the sea. I have heard that
    its good hiking target though i have never been
    there.
  • Lapland is turist-friendly place to see nature at
    its best. You can also ski and hike there and
    sometimes you may even see northern lights which
    are only seen near north and south pole.
  • During the summer in Lapland sun does not set at
    all and its bright even at midnight.
