With unreliable weather forecasts, we had a very challenging Northern Lights Excursion around Inari with my guests from Australia. They came from so far away and it was their only chance to see the Aurora Borealis! Check out how we find the Northern Lights between Inari and Utsjoki after so much driving!
When I travelled to Lapland at the occasion of the Inari Camera Borealis festival, I also guided a few guests to see and photograph the Aurora. On 18 November, despite the rather weak forecast, we were in for a treat!

After about a month of polar night, I witnessed the return of the sun in Finnish Lapland at the beginning of January. This means that the sun appeared again above the horizon, after remaining invisible for weeks at a time. It is considered as an important event by the local communities. They see this as a sign that spring is approaching.
