Finland: Summer Activities in Kemi Sea LaplandLike0

The midnight sun: is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the sun remains visible at the local midnight. A lot forget the beauty that Scandinavia offers during the summer days. From berry picking to enjoying the water activities and hikes. Kemi is a small town in Finland I visited in winter for the Icebreaker Cruise, but here below are activities you will also find in summer to enjoy! You can also read more about my Icebreaker cruise experience Here

Seaside Glass Villas

Spend your night in the air-conditioned villas mostly made of glass. Feel the nature, silence and sun light around you, enjoy the amazing sea- and skyview through the huge windows and glass roof. During the summer months the sun hardly sets, but do not worry you will sleep well as we have equipped the villas with blinders in the windows and glass roof. In autumn time you do not want to close your curtains. The clear starry northern sky and possibly the Northern Lights are fun to observe.

Sun & Sea Adventures

After the snowy winter and spring follows green and sunny summer with plenty of daylight. The sea ice melts and the sailing season begins. In Mid-Summer the sun is visible for the full 24 hours. In Kemi you can enjoy both the fresh air by the sea and the greenest and lushest forests in Finnish Lapland. The small city is near with all services from restaurants and shops to hotels and attractions.

Feel the nature in Sea Lapland

There are various activities available throughout the year. In summer the days are long and there is always time for a cruise on a traditional sailing yact, nature walk on the arctic island, hiking tours nearby the city and the sea of further away in deep forests and swamps. Midnight sun canoeing or fishing on the sea, white river rafting on the biggest free-flowing river in Europe and fishing on the salmon rich river are examples what the summer offers.
New ATV safaris also available both in summer and Aurora season. 

Arctic Wellness 

Short boat ride away lies the Arctic Adventure island with diverse forest that is filled with mushrooms and berries in late summer and autumn. You can find and easily pick vitamin- and nutrion-rich berries from forests nearby. Various sauna facilities with hot tubs offer arctic wellness and the Lappish Hut, big enough to seat more than 40 guests at once, is the place to enjoy the arctic delicacies

SnowCastle open 365 days 

Soon, Kemi will offer the experience of snow and ice in every season. All-year-round SnowCastle with various services for our visitors opens in late Decemeber 2018. Experience the “coolest” dinner  by the ice tables in the SnowRestaurant also in Summer and autumn in 2019. The restaurant services, both warm and cold, arctic wellness and safari services and much more under the same roof in the SnowCastle area in Kemi by the sea

  • Have you ever seen such fire in the sky at sunrise? This is what I woke up to one morning while sleeping on the catamaran in the Arctic wilderness @travelwithtjd 
Link in bio to join our #TravelwithTJD trip in February 2019 ☀️ Music by @bhwrd
  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
  • Take me back to @joalimaldives ☀️ Tag the person who you want to go to Maldives with!
