Lapland  - The Magical Journey

Few places awaken the inner child in us like Lapland. It is a place for adventure and where the magic of nature unfolds before your very eyes. To stand here surrounded by silence as you watch the dancing Aurora is a moment that will live with you forever. Lapland is an astonishingly beautiful place, and the first moment you step foot beyond the Arctic circle, you know you indeed are somewhere remarkable.

Coming to Lapland is a journey of a lifetime and one of those places on your bucket list of places to venture. The only way to describe Lapland is that there is tranquillity and a true sense of peacefulness. There is time to reflect, experience and appreciate nature and sit in awe at all around you. Lapland is a personal journey for the soul and one where memories are truly made that last forever.

The Northern Lights

Winter in Lapland is a time that challenges the mind with the seemingly endless darkness from 3 pm and the nights seem to be of endless darkness yet in the darkness we are able to see what is never visible in the daylight because actually there is sunlight from thousands of suns far far away. In a place with no light pollution, the sun sends greetings in the dark. Particles from violent storms on the surface of the sun travel towards the earth and collide with our magnetic field and create a solar storm we call the Aurora Borealis or the northern lights. There is an air of excitement as we head out to search the heavens for a glimpse of these heavenly lights. Suddenly we see the bright light glimmer on the horizon. We pause and then the sky is filled with the dancing Aurora. They shimmer and dart across the sky, sometimes faint and other times so colourful that the heavens seem alive. Seeing them we forget the outside world and drift with our thoughts. This is a moment we will never forget.

Polar Nights & Soft Light

Lapland’s location above the Arctic Circle also means that during the winter season, the sun never rises above the horizon which means there is no light for a couple of weeks and this is known as the polar nights. These extreme contrasts in light are caused by the rotation of the earth in relation to the position of the sun and the further north you go the greater the contrasts.

Imagine that feeling in January of seeing the sun return and feeling it on your face is so overwhelming and is like seeing the sun for the first time in your life. In the winter there is the twilight light and the most beautiful light., almost like a long, slow sunrise without the sun. If there is a clear sky there is a soft pink light that gets spread over the landscape and it is so beautiful.

Reindeer

Lapland is the land of the Reindeer and the indigenous Sami. There are over 200,00 reindeer in Finnish Lapland and you are guaranteed to see them on any of our adventures. For the Sami people, the Reindeer is revered in Sami culture because for thousands of years these perfectly adapted Arctic survivors have provided families with meat and milk; hides for clothing, shoes and tents; bones and antlers for tools, handicrafts and weapons; and sinews for sewing. This is reflected in the language: there are thought to be about 1,000 Sami words devoted to reindeer appearance, behaviour and habits.
