How cold does it get in Finland?

 Posted in Finland forum 14 Mar 2009, 13:16

I'm thinking of doing a Masters in Finland and wonder if there are any other expats that can tell me a little bit of how it feels to be living over there. Most of all - I wonder how cold it gets in winter? I've heard horrible stories about freezing cold winter - is this true?

    that's a matter of manners. For example, in your country gets cold more than Spain ;).

    Hi,

    Here is some information about Finland.

    The Finnish winter hardship depends where you are staying in the country (south, Helsinki area or west, Lapland). In Helsinki area normally -5 to -10-15. In Lapland normally -10 to -25-30 and winter months September-March.

    In the summer really good weather, beautiful place to be.
