During the summer months the sun never sets when above the Arctic Circle meaning lots of time for great Lapland activities at any time of the day! The longest days are in June but anytime between May and August will give you those extra long days to enjoy.

Planning your trip to the Arctic? Be sure to have a plan.

The Scandinavian Arctic covers a very big area, meaning distances between destinations can be large. Be sure to plan your trip well, taking into account travel time and how you are planning to move between places.
