The Midnight Sun in Finland

Discover Finland in beautiful Midnight Sun season in the summer month.

The best place to experience the Midnight Sun is Finnish Lapland. 

Two-thirds of all people living in areas graced by the Midnight Sun reside in Finland. In the northernmost parts of Finnish Lapland, the sun stays above the horizon for over 70 consecutive days. 

Below the Arctic Circle, the sun pops below the horizon for a few hours at night. In the South, the best time to enjoy the Midnight Sun is around June and July, and even Helsinki, the capital on the southern coast has virtual daylight around the clock.

Midnight summer festivals and events

Whether it is a lazily picnicking with friends, wandering through outdoor public parks, or beating the heat with a fresh scoop of ice cream, summer in Finland is like no other. In celebration of the Midnight Sun in Finland, every year various events and festivals take place. 

A Midnight Sun Film Festival in June takes place in Sodankylä, or what about go to a Midsummer Party in Seurasaari, Helsinki – it’s an experience you will never forget!
