If you are coming to Lapland these days, you will see that there is no much light. And it is like this: “no much light” instead of “no light at all” which lot of people believes.
This time of the year, from beginning of December to mid-January is so called “Kaamos” in Finnish, which is the word to describe the Polar Night. Although the Polar Night happens upper in the North, close to the Poles. When we talk about the Polar Circle Line (Arctic, in our case, Antarctic in the South Hemisphere), we talk about Polar Twilight.
Ok, at this time of the year we have some days when the sun does not raise above the horizon line, but is anyway somewhere close to the horizon, and still give some light to Lapland. And that light get a mystic blue color that is reflected to the snow, and the whole country side get colored with the same blue.
Isn’t it nicer to think in the blue moment rather than in the boring Polar twilight? And don’t forget to take the camera with you for the activities if you go out for some during the kaamos time!
