Each season holds its special light to make this region breathtakingly beautiful.

The intense Blue Light occurs for 6 to 7 weeks in December and January when the sun doesn’t cross the Arctic Circle’s horizon. It is the opposite of the midnight sun season, although it is far from dark. The snow, the stars, the moon, the Northern Light, together with the blue light, create an ethereal scenery; like “walking on a theatre scene”. This is the right time to take a break and absorb the magical beauty of nature at its best.
