The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle, when the sun remains visible at the local midnight.
A wonderful night adventure for unique natural phenomena lovers. Our tour takes you up to the top of the Santavaara Hill. A trip from the Rovaniemi city center will take not more than 25 minutes. The path leads through small birch forests and it takes about 30 minutes of walking until we reach the top of the mountain above the treeline. The route is relatively easy but requires good basic physical fitness. 
On days with good weather, the view up here is incredibly beautiful. The sun shines even at night, but it does not heat very much. Therefore, your professional guide will set up a fire for you, using the classic method of mining fire – flint and bark of a tree. We will use campfire not only for heating, but also for cooking. Delicious and simple midnight snacks will be prepared by your guide. The Lappish wild berries nurtured by the midnight sun are also healthy, and can be eaten just as they are when you find them. Just imagine: you are in Lapland, on top of Santa Claus Hill, under the midnight sun – this is an excellent occasion to celebrate that moment and drink a glass of sparkling wine. Cheers! 

If we are lucky, we will be able to see wild Arctic animals: reindeer, moose, forest birds.

You will have enough time to enjoy nature and make amazing photos.

A perfect tour for outdoor enthusiasts who don’t want to waste time in a fabulous summer Lapland.
