Can we see Aurora or Northern Lights? Can we sleep summertime when it's 24 hour daylight?
Yes you can. Best time of night to see them is generally between 9pm and 1am. Northern Light season continues until March.
Some time in late August, the sun finally dips far enough below the horizon that stars once again appear in the skies above Finland. And with the return of the stars comes one of the north’s most magical experiences: the Northern Lights. These silky dancing specters, also called aurora borealis, appear as green or violet sheets swaying silently (or crackling softly, depending on who you ask.) Caused by storms sent from the sun itself, seeing the Northern Lights is a transformative experience, a gift from the cosmos itself. There’s the you before you saw the aurora borealis, and the you after.
Yes you can. We have window and roof blinders.
As summer approaches in the north, something truly magical happens. Nights grow shorter and shorter until one day … they’re gone. This phenomenon is known as the Midnight Sun, Polar Day or Nightless Night, and the effect it has on the Arctic is stunning. 24 hours of sunlight opens the gateways for midnight adventures and near-mystical memories. From mid-May until mid-August, nighttime is but a memory, and in place of the stars and moon, there is the gentle, golden light. That’s why Finland is called the Land of the Midnight Sun.

3 private guest tips
As an integral part of Finnish culture, the sauna is something you simply must experience when visiting. The sauna is a wonderful place to relax and unwind after a long day. It increases metabolism, improves the blood flow while reducing blood pressure and makes it easier to breathe. Sauna has been considered as a cure for all illnesses from the flu to arthritis. An old Finnish saying goes: if booze, tar, and sauna do not cure your illness, then you probably won’t make it.

Visit a Husky Farm and Husky Safari from Kemi:
The practice of sled dogs dates back to 2000 BC. Historically it was used for work to pull loads in Siberia and North America. In the 1900s a Norwegian explorer used the sled dogs in a race to reach the South Pole. This practice then spread to European countries for nature tours and to bring supplies to soldiers during the First World War. Nowadays, sled dogs are mostly used for recreation.
