#tripaway Midnight Sun at the Arctic Circle. It’s when the Day and the Night melt together. That’s when you really feel that you are part of the nature yourself too. It’s the magic of summer and especially Lapland. #finland #midnightsun #saariselka #lapland
Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? 🌟 This has been a huge bucket list of mine since very ling time ago. It’s crazy to think that this is a natural phenomenon that only happens in specific regions of the world, at a specific tike of the year and under precise meteorological conditions. I had seen content creators go to Lapland in the beginning of this year and many of them were unlucky not to be able to see them. I was worried it would be the same case for us over our 6 days in Lapland, but we got extremely lucky on the first and last day of our trip. The excitement I got from being able to capture these were unprecedented and unparalleled. Anyone planning to go to the Arctic Circle, I absolutely highly recommend it, and I promise you you will not regret it 😻✨
A couple of years ago I had seen a few of my favorite content creators go on a photography trip to the northern part of Finland 🇫🇮 , also known as Lapland. This area which is part of the Arctic Circle, is known for its winter wonderland vibes and breathtaking sceneries expanding on vast areas. ❄️
This winter, I finally made it happen. I didn’t believe it could exceed my already very high expectations. But it did.
I am going to share my best shots from this Lapland trip this week. Here is the first few from the Northern Lights Village, a beautiful property we stayed at in Saariselkä. Make sure to follow along 😇
During our #finland trip, we stayed at a hotel called Aurora Village Ivalo, one of the best experiences ever, we slept in an Aurora Cabin to witness the beauty of the Northern Lights, we drove Snow mobile for 6 hours and after we relax in the sauna and swam in the ice water!
My childhood fantasy comes true #ibelieveinsanta
[After 81° north latitude, I realize that life is spiritual and beautiful]
If Aurora is the most dazzling color in winter, then Midnight Sun is the most picturesque scenery in summer. If such a natural wonder can come in person A live experience will be a dreamy journey in this life. The climate in the
Arctic region is cold all year round. The Arctic Ocean is a vast, frozen sea surrounded by numerous islands and coastal areas in North America and northern Asia. The North Pole refers to the northern end of the Earth's rotation axis, that is, the point at 90° north latitude. The Arctic region refers to the area within the Arctic Circle that is 66°34' north latitude near the North Pole. In the winter, the sun is always below the horizon, and the sea is completely frozen. In summer, temperatures rise above freezing, and the edge of the Arctic Ocean melts, and the sun hangs in the sky for weeks. The Arctic Ocean is rich in fish and plankton, which provides a rich source of food for millions of seabirds nesting here in the summer. At the same time, it is also the food of seals, whales and other marine animals. Most of the area around the Arctic Ocean is relatively flat with no trees growing. The winter land is frozen and the ground is covered with thick snow. In the summer, the snow melts, the surface soil thaws, the plants grow and bloom, and food is provided for animals such as reindeer and yak. At the same time, carnivores such as wolves and polar bears also survive by preying on other animals.
A lot of guests went to the South Pole and the North Pole after the ship, and they thought that the Antarctic and the Arctic are polar, but the feeling is very different. The Antarctic is pure and the Arctic is vast. The Arctic has a wide range, which can refer to the Arctic Circle or the 90° North Point. As a traveler, you can go to the Svalbard Islands, the hometown of polar bears, or Greenland, which has more than 80% snow and ice coverage;

Northern towns of Finland. Located at the mouth of the Ounas River and on the right bank of the Kemi River. More than 160 kilometers north of Oulu, the Arctic Circle passes south of it. The population is 31,000 (1981). The city was built in 1929. It is the center of timber transportation and leather trade.
This is a city belonging to the Arctic Circle, and many second-hand shops have been found here. The European stuff in one hand is really expensive, and the second-hand shop has solved this problem perfectly. Let us still have Opportunity to find local features.
Santa Claus Village, very commercial but very strong Christmas atmosphere ~ fairy-tale houses, cute Santa (at least 30 languages and tourists say hello?), can send special postcards The post office, the lazy reindeer... the atmosphere here is always so lively. Both adults and children seem to have seen the people and things in their dreams here. Escape from everyday, relax in the little village in this fairy tale.
But its a fee to pay with Santa Claus. The price is not cheap. Since you have come here, its fun.
