Magical lapland in the Arctic Cirlcle is blessed with natural beauty surrounded by snow & a polar night. I was not lucky again to catch the Northern lights as it was very cloudy but I did get to see the Polar nights.
Polar night or ” kaamos” in Finnish is seen against the horizon . The abundance of snow against the light becomes a bluish tone. This is the result that in the Arctic Circle there is almost no daylight. When I was there is December the sunlight was at 10:30 AM and sets at 13:30 PM.
This natural phenomena of nature is called “blue moment” . You can catch this during the afternoon just before the sunsets, so yes at 13:30.
If you are a photography buff, you can walk around Rovaniemi and catch some wondeful moments of nature. It was not as cold when I was there. The Finnish, just like us Canadians are all well equiped when it comes to the cold and snow.
Whle on your personal photography tour, make sure you dress warmly, bring extra batteries for your camera and drink some Glögi to warm up .
