Due to Finland’s northern position, winter is the longest season. It runs generally from December to March, however, in places like Lapland, winter can arrive as early as October. Sunlight can be minimal in Lapland with days in December experiencing just four hours of daylight per day. Southern Finland enjoys warmer winters with less snow. Spring in Finland runs from April to May and it is during this season that the snow starts to melt and days get longer. Summer is from June to August and is characterized by bright nights. This time of year is known as the season of the midnight sun and in Lapland from June to July, the sun doesn’t set. Finally, autumn is from September to November with drops in temperature and rain.
