The Lapland Midnight Sun is a paradise for Photographers and Nature lovers. Imagine yourself immersed in 24 hours daylight, with the sun staying above the horizon even during the "night" time. There, the Golden Hour actually lasts for several hours. Check out my tips!
With a large part of the country not seeing a sunset for 2 months every summer, Finland is truly the land of the Midnight Sun. In summer, north of the Arctic Circle (and south of the Antarctic Circle), the sun does not set at all. It remains visible around local midnight, which is why we call this the Midnight Sun.
Join us in January 2020 for this Northern Lights and Polar Night photography workshop in Utsjoki, in the very north of Finnish Lapland! We will photograph the winter landscapes in the unique twilight of the polar night, meet reindeer and their herder, and of course attempt to catch the beautiful Aurora Borealis.

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!
This year 2017 has provided amazing displays of Northern Lights up in Northern Finnish Lapland. Check out my own 7 favourite pictures of the year.
As landscape photographers, we often prefer impressive sights. Those usually happen around sunrise or sunset, with clouds at the right place, sun at the right angle, and bright hues of orange, red and/or pink all around. But landscape photography in the fog is also possible and actually quite exciting. I tried a minimalistic approach there on the Kaunispää fell in Saariselkä, Finnish Lapland, to make the best of this day.
