Autumn in the Arctic

Autumn in the arctic is a season of blazing trails, sensational sunsets and spectacular northern-lights.

Autumn is also a glorious time to visit this region because of the fall colours. Indeed, Lapland gets more Finnish tourists at this time of year than at any other. There are no longer any mosquitos around and the colours of the landscape are magnificent. Nights can already be sub-zero in September and mornings will be crisp and cool, sometimes with a layer of hoar frost on the ground. Daytime temperatures are pleasant although these get progressively colder until there is permanent snow cover on the ground and we switch to sleigh training.
