Goodbye Polar Night!

The period called the Polar Night enters Kilpisjärvi at the end of November and leaves again in the middle of January. During this time, which we in Finnish call “kaamos”, the sun does not rise above the horizon. The midday hours are wrapped in soft hues of blue light and the sky line is often blazing with various shades of orange. If you haven’t experienced the Polar Night, add it on your bucket list and start planning a trip to Kilpisjärvi next December!
