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!

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.
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
