Arctic Summer & Autumn Activities

visitrovaniemi.fi


Arctic Summer & Autumn Activities Located on the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi is a summer town of endless light and action. With its white nights and fresh colours, the Arctic summer is a complete opposite to winter. Instead of snow, there’s green everywhere, nature flourishes in the continuous light, and in autumn the scenery turns into a colourful masterpiece, perfected with darkening nights and northern lights. This wonderful season bursts with life and excitement, whether experienced on the ground or the water. Here’s an overview of our various activities for the snowless season.

The snow-free season lasts from the end of April until midNovember. The arctic summer months are June, July, and August. Many excursions are operated with a minimum of two full-paying customers, but single travellers are most welcome to join if a tour already has enough participants. Many companies provide a pick-up service. The meeting point will be confirmed upon reservation. The prices in this brochure are prices per adult. Most of the companies offer a 25–50 % discount for children. The age limit varies between companies.
