La única constante es el cambio

Inviernos fríos, veranos cálidos, otoños coloridos y primaveras llenas de luz que traen el renacimiento de la naturaleza son lo más destacado del ciclo anual septentrional. En Rovaniemi, las cuatro estaciones principales se completan con estaciones de transición, lo que significa que el clima cambia constantemente; a continuación lo explicamos con más detalle.

Pleno invierno

Este periodo ocupa los meses de enero y febrero y también se conoce como el corazón del invierno. Con muy pocas horas de luz, un misterioso aire de silencio y tranquilidad envuelve el entorno natural. Una fantástica manera de experimentar el gélido periodo de pleno invierno es con las actividades invernales.
Temperatura habitual: –25 ºC a –15 ºC

Primavera nevada

Las horas de luz comienzan a aumentar espectacularmente hacia finales de febrero y el brillante sol de primavera baña los paisajes nevados hasta que la nieve empieza a derretirse a finales de abril. Para muchos lugareños, esta es su época del año preferida y se nota: los montes, los bosques y las aguas heladas están llenas de gente practicando actividades al aire libre como esquí, pesca en el hielo, excursiones en moto de nieve o incluso paseos a pie para disfrutar de tiempo con uno mismo.
Temperatura habitual: –15 ºC a 5 ºC

Primavera: cuando el hielo se rompe y la naturaleza renace

Totalmente congelado durante meses, el hielo de los ríos Ounasjoki y Kemijoki —en cuya confluencia se encuentra Rovaniemi— se empieza a derretir, a romper y a bajar río abajo en témpanos durante los meses de abril y mayo. Esta época marca el renacimiento anual de la naturaleza: las flores y las plantas empiezan a mostrar signos de vida después de haber quedado sepultadas bajo la nieve durante meses, los renos empiezan a criar y los días se hacen cada vez más largos; el verano está a la vuelta de la esquina.
Temperatura habitual: 5 ºC a 15 ºC

Verano y sol de medianoche

En Rovaniemi, el sol de medianoche brilla desde comienzos de junio hasta comienzos de julio, pero las noches son blancas desde fines de mayo hasta principios de agosto. Los periodos cálidos, en que las temperaturas alcanzan los 25 grados, suelen producirse entre mediados de junio y mediados de agosto. Con 24 horas de luz, hay mucho tiempo para las actividades de verano y los actos festivos.
Temperatura habitual: 15 ºC a 25 ºC

Temporada de recolección y primeras auroras

El mes de agosto en Rovaniemi se caracteriza por la recolección de frutos de la naturaleza, como bayas y setas. Los lugareños se adentran en el bosque en busca de moras árticas, arándanos azules, arándanos rojos y setas. Para los visitantes, hay disponibles guías sobre qué recolectar y dónde. Las noches empiezan a oscurecer a mediados de agosto, que es cuando comienza la temporada de auroras boreales.
Temperatura habitual: 10 ºC a 20 ºC

El color de las hojas en otoño

En septiembre, se empiezan a sentir las primeras bocanadas del ya próximo aire invernal. En la naturaleza tiene lugar el variado despliegue de colores de las hojas de otoño, cuando las hojas van adquiriendo diversos matices de tonos terrosos. Es la época ideal para realizar actividades al aire libre en Rovaniemi, especialmente senderismo y trekking.
Temperatura habitual: 5 ºC a 15 ºC

Primeras nevadas: llega el invierno

Las temperaturas nocturnas caen por debajo de los cero grados en octubre, a veces incluso a finales de septiembre, y las heladas hacen que las mañanas se vuelvan de un blanco brillante. La gente espera con ansia las primeras nevadas y, cuando empiezan a caer, los niños se apresuran a salir al exterior para construir sus primeros muñecos de nieve. Las primeras pistas de esquí de fondo se abren con la ayuda de la nieve acumulada durante el invierno anterior. Las primeras nevadas se derriten rápidamente, pero regresan de forma permanente en unas semanas, normalmente a finales de noviembre.
Temperatura habitual: –5 ºC a 5 ºC

Navidad

En diciembre, la oscuridad de la noche polar desciende hasta Rovaniemi, pero la nieve y las luces de Navidad iluminan los alrededores con su alegre resplandor. La ciudad es un hervidero de actividad, con visitantes de todo el mundo que se acercan para conocer al habitante más famoso de Rovaniemi, Santa Claus.
El día más corto del año es el 21 o el 22 de diciembre (dependiendo del año), y dado que se encuentra justo en el Círculo Polar Ártico, ese día el sol no sale en Rovaniemi. Después de Navidad, toda la atención se centra en Año Nuevo y las crecientes horas de luz.
Temperatura habitual: –15 ºC a –5 ºC

Today it's been snowing all day here in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland and we're thrilled 😍 

Pics are from this morning and by now there are already piles of snow... 

First snow rarely stays for long due to changes in weather and temperature. Permanent snow comes when it comes – We're ready ❄️❄️❄️❄️
