Witness the Midnight Sun in Finland
Said to be one of the most iconic of Finland's natural phenomenon, the Midnight Sun occurs in Finland due to the tilt of the earth's axis which places regions above the Arctic Circle in almost unending daylight for up to 70 consecutive days. Around two-thirds of the word's people who experience the Midnight Sun live in Finnish Lapland and they take full advantage of these long daylight hours.
After living through a long and dark winter, these long sunlit hours play a significant role in the lives and lifestyles of those who live here. The Finns love the quiet and peaceful life and experiencing the Midnight Sun in the middle of Lapland's wilderness allows an insight into a true northerly way of life.About Midnight Sun in Finland
A 'nightless' night
The main aspect of this phenomenon of 'nightless' night is that you will experience the incredible change in the nature of the light and late into the evening will experience the warm and bright light that you get usually only at sunrise or sunset.
When nights are as light as day, locals and visitors alike can continue activities late into the night and enjoy the magnificence of the Midnight Sun with activities such as swimming, kayaking and hiking.
One favoured activity is of course simply waiting up until midnight to watch the sun dip briefly beyond the horizon before rising again. It really is a beautiful sight to see as the boundaries blur between the fading night and dawning day.
