Hello, welcome to almost the last scene of the winter season 2022/’23.
The first 10 minutes were filmed on a beautiful winter day in March, the second part was shot in February as the sun was setting.
How would you feel if i told you that there is about 6 meters of water under our feet?
The surface of the lake is about 6 km² and its average depth is 3.2 meters.
The deepest point of the lake is 9.8 meters.
But as you can see, we are not alone and it’s perfectly safe to walk.
It is amazing to see such a large, completely frozen body of water become a great winter sports destination for ice skating, cross country skiing, biking and walking.
Lake Tuusula is a nationally significant destination in the era of national romanticism in Finland.
It has been immortalized in artwork painted by artists who lived on its shores.
In 2017, the Finnish Nature Association chose Lake Tuusula as one of Finland’s 100 Natural Gems.
The southern half of the lake is part of the city of Tuusula and the northern half is maintained by the city of Järvenpää.
If given the choice, would you try ice skating, cross-country skiing or walking?
Thank you, i had a fun time filming and i hope you enjoy it.
