Midnight Sun Photography Tour

from 95 €
On this tour we will take you to the best locations around Rovaniemi to experience and photograph the unique phenomenon of the Midnight Sun.
The Midnight Sun is one of the most amazing phenomena in Lapland during the summer months. During June and July, the sun does not set below the horizon. Instead we experience some dumbfounding displays of colours as they slowly settle over the horizon. On this tour we will take you to the best locations around Rovaniemi to experience and photograph this unique natural phenomenon.

We start from Rovaniemi and drive to a few different locations to catch the vivid light of the sunset. The tour is scheduled around midnight, so that we are able to photograph the best moments of both the sunset and the sunrise!

We take you to locations chosen for their great scenery and the nature around us. We will photograph next to rivers and lakes, forests and wilderness areas, in order to capture authentic Lappish landscapes under the Midnight Sun. We will teach you some basics of photographing in dusk light and how to catch all the amazing colours with your camera. During the tour, we also set up a campfire and eat some BBQ snacks while experiencing the Nightless Night in the middle of authentic Lappish sceneries.

Notice! The exact time of the Midnight Sun in Rovaniemi is from 5th of June till 6th of July. We continue running the tour 1-month after the actual Midnight Sun, as we are still able to photograph beautiful sunsets in July and August too!

Where it happens

Location pin


Lapland, Finland

Rovaniemi is the biggest city of Lapland, the home of Santa and a gateway to the Arctic, located at the Arctic Circle. Did you know that, if you look at the city map close enough, you’ll spot a reindeer’s head in the street plan? Rovaniemi is a lively and bustling urban center and only a hop and a skip from arctic wilderness. The Ounasvaara hill rises just across the river from downtown: climb to the top to admire the soothing views. Rovaniemi is a good base from where to start the arctic adventures. 

Address: Valtakatu 21 , 96200 Rovaniemi
