Nuuksio national park 6.5.2013
The series featuring Finnish national parks continues with a sheet of ten stamps dedicated to Nuuksio national park. Nuuksio is the southernmost inland national park in Finland. It can be accessed by public transport or even bicycle from the Greater Helsinki area. The forest-covered landscape of Nuuksio is rolling and spotted with lakes and ponds. The Haukkalampi Lake area is the theme of the Nuuksio National Park first-class stamp designed by Teemu Ollikainen.
But, what makes this stamp so special is the Chameleon Code embedded within the image. Using a smart phone or tablet, you can use the code to access the internet and watch a video of beautiful Finnish nature. The service works on all Android and iPhone telephones and tablets. Customers can download the Chameleon eXplorer app free of charge from Apple's App Store or from Google Play.
