kuusamo sunrise

After the long, dark winter months in Kuusamo, northern Finland, the bright summer days are real tonic to the soul. And the amount of light we get is incredible. At the end of May it’s already light for 24 hours a day, although the sun does officially set for around two and a half hours.

The big freeze has begun in northern Finland, with our lakes already frozen enough to walk over. This is a video I made about the eerie noise the ice makes as it is forming. not what you'd expect at all!

To reach the best ski resorts in Finland you need to travel above the Arctic Circle into Lapland. Although Finnish resorts are at low altitudes compared with those of the Alps, snow is always guaranteed and conditions are nearly always perfect. Skiing is ideal for beginners and intermediates, although advanced skiers will be challenged by the off-piste opportunities. Finnish "tunturis" offer excellent opportunities for snow sports, and the country’s long periods of frost-weather and clean white snow favors both alpine and cross-country skiing. The first snow usually falls in October and piles up until the end of March - lasting as late as May.
Choose to ski under the stars and Northern lights in mid-winter, or with 20 hours of often sunny daylight in April. Apres ski is something else, with a choice of Reindeer safaris, Husky dog-sled trips or turn up the adrenaline with a snowmobile adventure.

Just returned from Helsinki and elsewhere in south Finland. What a wonderful, luminous place this is, at least in summer! I'll be writing a blog post or two, and posting pics, stay tuned...
