Midnight sun 


June – July

Around Midsummer in Rovaniemi Lapland, the sun does not
set for several weeks. Even in August, the ’night’ consists of a period of
prolonged twilight rather than real darkness.

"Kaamos" time

October - February

From November to January, various shades of soothing blue are Lapland’s most distinctive colors. The land is cloaked in a dim veil of light,
known as the ’kaamos’, and bedded down for its winter slumber. During these mid-winter months, the sun does not rise at all. The bright stars and sometimes moon combined with totally white and pure snow anyway give light enough in clear nights to see very well.

As a counterbalance to the sleepy world of snow and ice, the Northern Lights flash across the clear night skies. It’s possible to see
the phenomenon in any part of Lapland - if the weather conditions are right, but the best bet is in February-March and September-October.
