Summer


 
The Globe-flower, Trollius europaeus, is a perennial plant of the family Ranunculaceae.
It grows in damp ground in shady areas, woodland and scrub, flowering between June and August.

Summer is the warmest of the four temperate seasons, between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, culture, and tradition, but when it is summer in the southern hemisphere it is winter in the northern hemisphere, and vice versa.

Summer in Lapland is bright, the time of the nightless night. Night and day the midnight sun stays above the horizon.
Actual hot weather (>25°C) days are few and far between in Lapland, as the average temperature for the whole of Lapland varies between 10 to 16 degrees Celsius. Before Midsummer frost can occur in many places in Lapland, so July and its last weeks are the warmest times of the summer. Early summer also has very little precipitation, as rain only starts to increase around August.

 

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in summer months at latitudes north of the Arctic Circle. Given fair weather, the sun is visible for a continuous 24 hours, mostly north of the Arctic Circle. A quarter of Finland's territory lies north of the Arctic Circle and at the country's northernmost point the sun does not set for 73 days during summer. Many find it difficult to fall asleep during the night when the sun is shining, but dont worry we offer lot of things to do also at night.  Try for example midnight rafting in Kukkolaraft.
