Average time to visit
Winter is the perfect time to visit Finnish Lapland. The winter temperatures can vary anywhere between 0°C and -40°C. The average temperature in January is -14°C, but the cold is not biting because the air is dry. There can be as much as one meter of snow and it usually lasts until May. There is potential for Northern Lights viewing throughout the winter months.

Spend an evening under the stars, huddled around the campfire in the middle of the winter wilderness. Stay warm with hot drinks as you keep your eyes peeled for the Northern Lights dancing in the sky overhead.
Take a snowmobile across the snowy landscape in search of the Northern Lights. Once darkness has fallen, you will drive away from artificial lights and towards the Lappish wilderness. If the weather is clear, you will hopefully see the Lights dancing!
