Welcome to the land of the Midnight Sun! Also known as Polar Day, this phenomenon occurs exclusively in the Arctic Circle. The Summer transforms Rovaniemi from a white winter wonderland into a plush green boreal forest with colorful and regionally unique underbrush. With all this daylight and endless ice-free rivers, there is plenty of time to explore the natural beauty on jet skis up and down Rova´s many limitless rivers. Is bigger better? Then hop on a cruise ship for a cocktail and a scenic river cruise. If you’re not too drunk after the river cruise, wander down to the stables for a breathtaking horseback ride under the arctic skyscape.
Who doesn´t like puppies? Haven´t met that person yet! What about a baby reindeer? Too cute for words! Take this opportunity to call on one of the many animal friendly husky and reindeer farms to visit well treated and loving animal friends for a snuggle and several hundred impossibly cute selfies.
For the fitness fanatic, join LM founder Dave for a high energy free run on a ski mobile trail. During the spring and summer, the snow recedes, leaving a muddy track that is excellent strength training for the knees as you mash in and out of the swampy brilliance in high boots. Take this opportunity to train under Judo / Jiu Jitsu black belt and ninja philosopher Marko Oikarainen at MMA Rovaniemi.
In the summer, Finland becomes cottage country! There are half a million summer homes, that demonstrate this unique culture that values property over other more contemporary financial assets. Statistically, Finns prefer to invest their time and resources in summer cottages rather than vacations abroad. These summer cottages are retreats that maintain wellbeing by breaking with the rigors of modern society, allowing the locals to unwind and regenerate. Spend your summer basking in Natures Spa, decompress in the Finnish temple of heat, steam and tranquility alongside one of the many lakes and rivers the Lapland joyously offers. Lumi Matka is excited to introduce you and your group to a novel and natural form of spiritual rejuvination.
