In February the Polar night and the long darkness of the Heart of Winter slowly gives in and the days grow longer. The cold spells of -20 through -45 degrees Celsius gradually ease towards milder numbers. But winter doesn’t go anywhere, it just shows her more pleasant side. Spring-Winter, or Kevättalvi is the favorite time of the whole year for many Northern Laplanders.
Spring-Winter is full of light, as the glimmering, pristine ice and snow cover magnifies the light of the sun. At nights the Aurora Borealis light up the skies.
All this light and warmth gives the Laplanders energy to finally enjoy the wintry nature and many snow activities. Spring-Winter is the very best time for ice-fishing, snowmobiling, skiing and other snow sports. Many visitors prefer Spring-Winter too, as popular destinations are less crowded and outdoor activities feel more pleasant with improved weather.
The Northern Lights Village warmly welcomes You to experience the Spring-Winter of Northern Lapland from beginning of March to April 18th.
Ps. We got you covered if snow decides to leave early and you have booked winter activities: See Seasonal Transitions and their Impact on Services on Terms and Conditions.
