Autumn

Northern Lights dance in the autumn sky

In autumn the colourful foliage delights visitors. The reduction in daylight prompts the plants to begin their winter preparations. Deciduous trees, shrubs and grass start to change colour into deep shades of red, yellow and orange. In northern Lapland the autumn colours are at the most beautiful in September.

Crisp and sunny autumn days are spent outdoors, and as the evening comes, it is time to chase the Northern Lights. Why not bring your camera along and try to catch the aurora borealis reflected on the surface of a lake? Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy the autumn scenery along the well-marked trails of the Urho Kekkonen or Lemmenjoki National Park. In the autumn the magnificent scenery can also be reached via a riverboat cruise on the River Lemmenjoki and Lake Inarijärvi, or on a kayaking trip on the numerous wilderness rivers. Autumn and late summer are the peak seasons for foraging Lapland’s superfoods, which is best done with a local nature guide.
