Lapland’s seasons are each as beautiful as the one before it. Here’s a low down on what you’ll see (and feel!) at the different times of year.
Spring: Lapland finally begins to wake from the long cold winter, with slightly longer days and warmer conditions. The lakes are still frozen and the snow is very thick, sometimes not thawing until May. This is the time for outdoor pursuits such as trekking, ice fishing and cross-country skiing.
Summer: Between late May and late July, you can experience the magnificent Midnight Sun. The sun never leaves the horizon, giving you unlimited daylight to pursue all your sporting adventures. You can go white water rafting, kayaking and canoeing on the lakes and rivers. Temperatures even rise to a healthy 18 degrees, giving Lapland’s beautiful landscapes a chance to shine.
Autumn: During the “Ruska” season from the end of August until mid September, Lapland is a rainbow of colour. The trees are covered in vibrant Oranges, Reds and Browns. You can go berry and mushroom picking or play a few rounds of golf before the winter weather kicks in.
Winter: Lasting up to 200 days some years, Lapland becomes a picture perfect Wonderland of ice and snow. Visit Lapland with Transun and you can visit Santa and his reindeers and elves at his cosy log cabin or witness the infamous Northern Lights. With glows of Greens, Reds and Blues taking over the night sky, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a true wonder of the world.
