Land of the Midnight Sun
During the period of the midnight sun you can enjoy the outdoors any time of day! This phenomenon can only be experienced above the Arctic Circle and is caused by the fact that the earth is tilted, and is changing position as it orbits the sun. Many wonder how Finns survive with no sunlight in the winter, and nature replies with 24 hours of it in the summer.
Berries & Mushrooms
White summer nights ripen berries making them uniquely tasty. The combination of everyman’s rights and naturally grown berries and mushroom transforms activities such as hiking into delicious voyages of discovery. Even though Finnish berries and fruits are smaller than average, they are packed with sweet flavours, healthy vitamins and flavonoids.
Autumn colors galore
After being bathed 24 hours per day in daylight during the summer months, the nature in Lapland experiences a quick transition towards winter. Leaves on the trees turn orange and yellow, the tundra turns to the most beautiful hues of red. Autumn leaf colors, or “ruska” to locals, lasts three weeks in September.
Northern Lights season
Even though many people associate the Northern Lights with cold and snowy winter scenery, the most active seasons are actually autumn and spring when the earth’s orientation towards the sun maximises the probability of solar flares interacting with the planet’s magnetic field to generate this phenomenon. In Autumn you can also capture the Northern Lights reflecting from the surface of the lake.
The two-month long polar night begins in November when the sun no longer rises above the horizon. The darkness takes on shades of blue, violet and purple, colors that tame a restless soul. Despite not been able to see the sun, we do still have a few hours of daylight. Our opinion is that Polarnight season might be one of the beautifulest season of the year.
February to April is a period of intense brightness, as the sun sparkles off deep white snow. Don’t forget your sunglasses, sunblock and a dimmer for your camera. This time of year is the best time for ice fishing, skiing and soaking in the wonderful sun.
