Midnight Sun Hike

Midnight Sun Hike on the Shores of Lake Inari

Embark on a captivating Midnight Sun hiking excursion in the enchanting northern Lapland, where the sun never sets during summer months. This ethereal experience begins with a 20 minute Jeep ride, transporting you through the pristine landscape towards the rolling hills surrounding lake Inari. As you traverse the rugged terrain, prepare to be mesmerized by the natural beauty that unfolds before your eyes, while the warm glow of the Midnight Sun illuminates the endless horizon.

Upon arriving at the trailhead the journey continues on foot, guided by the gentle light of the Midnight Sun. The hike, though not overly strenuous, does require a moderate level of fitness and determination as you navigate through the diverse flora and fauna of the area. Along the way, you may encounter wildlife such as reindeer, arctic hares and various species of birds. As you reach the summit of the hills, take a moment to appreciate the unobstructed view of lake Inari and the vast wilderness that stretches out before you, a testament to the enduring allure of northern Lapland.
