In Ylläs, Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, trees age and their beards grow. In reality, the beards hanging from the trees are lichens, but they thrive in old forests and enjoy clean air. In Ylläs we have the cleanest air in the world. That's why the beards of the trees grow long and strong.

Have you ever skied above the clouds? 🌤️ The clouds are like cotton candy and move like waves. The sun illuminates them to yellow or orange. It's like a fairy tale. 🧚‍♂️
