DESTINATION MANAGEMENT & PROMOTER
GET ACTIVE – NIGHTS ARE WHITE ALL SUMMER
In Lapland, nights are white throughout the summer from late May until early August. This means there’s 24 hours a day for activities like jet skiing, horseback riding, swimming, hiking, river cruises, visiting husky and reindeer farms and a whole lot more – pretty much anything you can do during the day, you can do in the night.
Sleep? Do it later!
