Polar night – winter
Polar Night is something that can not be explained – you have to experience it yourself. One might think that as the sun does not rise at all, the polar night must be very dark, right? Wrong!
Polar night, in Finnish “kaamos”, is a time period when the sun does not rise above the horizon in an Arctic Circle area around the world
In the northernmost parts of Finland the sun really doesn’t come up for weeks, but thanks to the snow, northern lights and moonlight, the polar night is actually very beautiful and colorful. Also, the noon looks like a sunrise turning into a sunset without the sun never actually getting up – this is when you can see some beautiful pink and orange colors in the sky!
In Southern Finland the polar night actually seems darker because of the lack of snow that would light the surroundings. Here, however, the sun does get up every day at least for a few hours.
For an outdoor traveller the polar night of Finland offers a one of a kind experience of natures silence and the miracles of the night sky; this is the time when you can see some northern lights and the Milkyway!
