Description

Enjoy the phenomenon of the light summer nights while learning fascinating facts on local nature and history
This evening trip takes you on a forest hike in the Pallas-Ylläs National Park where you will follow a nature trail to a wilderness lake. On the way, your guide will introduce you the fauna and flora that could be seen in the surrounding nature. Even though it is “night time”, the natural world is not asleep, and it is not uncommon to come across a herd of reindeers or birds like Siberian jay and willow grouse. On arrival to the steep-walled ravine lake close to a massive rock formation, your guide will tell you stories of the old Sámi mythology connected to these beautiful natural formations. Half way of the hike, you will enjoy an evening snack and take your time to experience the Midnight Sun, surrounded by tranquil nature. Even if the sky is cloudy and the reddish-yellow colour of the sun cannot be seen, the summer bright night in the Arctic is an experience in itself.
