AUTUMN COLORS AND NORTHERN LIGHTS WILL COLOR UP THE AUTUMN IN LAPLAND
In early September, after the first nights of below zero temperatures, nature starts to get ready for the winter. Leaves in the trees are getting colorful, and you can see beautiful yellow, orange and red colors all around you.
When autumn is imminent and the evenings become darker, it is a good moment to stop and breathe fresh air – and look up at the sky! In Lapland you can already see the auroras starting at the end of August. To see or photograph the auroras, the sky needs to be clear and you must be far from any excess lights. Often autumn is the best time to capture them when the land is dark and there is as little scattered light as possible to disturb the view. The best direction to look for the auroras is in the northern sky when it is clear and dark.
In Western Lapland, in the cleanest air in the inhabited world, you can easily pick the superfood straight from nature, herbs, berries and mushrooms. Berry season in Lapland starts in mid-July with cloudberry, and lasts until October, or first snow, when the cranberry is at its best.
