The midnight sun in Lapland occurs during the summer months in May, June and July. Duration 5 h including return transfers from your hotel. If you prefer you may also order transfer by quadbike up the hill by additional price. The summit and large forests around are really worth seeing! We have received great feedback from this tour for years.

In very northernmost regions the sun will not set for 73 days and in these parts, the sun will be visible at the hour of Midnight and beyond. The midnight sun is described as a natural phenomenon. This phenomenon occurs because the Earth’s Axis is tilted in respect of its orbit around the sun and it will only occur in the North of the Arctic Circle and South of the Antarctic Circle.

The locals in Lapland are familiar with the seasons in Lapland, and with the polar nights and midnight sun and it very rarely affects them. People here in the north sleep less in summer time and more in winter time. New houses are built in summer time, winter time is traditionally more just relaxing time concentrating on work indoors. Midsummer time is the most active time in a year…
