Winter in the Finnish wilds!

Don’t be fooled by this frozen scene’s tranquility. Once the snow melts in northern Finland’s Oulanka National Park, the river’s gentle swirl will turn to deafening rapids, hosting rafters as well as waterfall-peeping tourists. But there’s time to enjoy the winter calm, since the region’s wintry cold regularly stretches into April or May.
The partly frozen whirlpool churns near Myllykoski, a defunct mill that’s now a resting point along Finland’s busiest nature trail, Karhunkierros. The 50-mile route begins more than 500 miles north of Helsinki, with midsummer hikers enjoying treks lit by the midnight sun. For determined skiers and snowshoers, portions of the trail remain open through the frigid winter.
