What’s going on in Finland?

Winter is coming – polar night is about to begin in the North

Just before the winter and skiing season are about to start, it is the best time to calm down and find your peace and silence from the Finnish nature.

November is here and it offers a variation of different activities around Finland! In the South you can still enjoy the fresh autumn air in nature, pick mushrooms from the wild and feel those nice crispy mornings just before the winter comes. In the North there is already snow on the ground, lakes are freezing and polar night is about to begin.

During the off-season it is actually the best time to go out and enjoy the nature and its calming silence. Evenings are dark and if you are lucky you can see not only Milkyway but also some northern lights!

People often think that polar night is dark and almost black, since the Sun does not rise at all in the North of Finland. But during the winter time it actually gives the landscape a totally unique and beautiful blue, pink and orange colouring and glow.
