What’s going on in Finland?

Spring is coming!

There’s more and more sunlight every day – the polar night is officially over! Yay!

In Finland winter lasts for months. If you want to see snow, reindeer and auroras, make sure you’re heading for Lapland. In southern Finland there’s snow and northern lights only occasionally, and no reindeer whatsoever.

Right now days are getting longer; especially in the North of Finland there’s distinctly more and more sunlight day by day, as the polar night is long gone.

The real spring with flowers blooming and birds singing starts way more early than in the South coast than in Lapland. The contrast is huge especially in April and May: whereas in Lapland there’s still lots of snow and ice, in Southern Finland it’s almost (if not fully) summer!
