Activities in different seasons


From twilight time to the nightless night

Lapland belongs to a continental climatic zone characterised by snowy winters and relatively warm summers. Seasons of Lapland distinctly differ from one another, from the wintertime period of harsh freezing temperatures and a few hours of daylight to the springtime with great ski slope conditions and the summertime with the Midnight Sun and autumn with its vibrant autumnal ruska period. 

How about downhill or cross-country skiing on guaranteed snow cover, or perhaps a sensory awakening with a dip in an ice pool? Would you prefer a long canoeing trip in the sunshine, or maybe a trek through the vibrantly coloured ruska countryside? These are all given to you by Lapland’s spectacularly different four seasons.

Lapland can also be described as the land of 8 seasons: deep winter, late winter, spring, early summer, summer, late summer, autumn, early winter. In the north we live in firm connection with the nature and also the changing seasons bring remarkable changes also into people's daily routines.
