Rovaniemi kicks off the Northern Lights season

Rovaniemi opens yeat another stunning Northern Lights season. In Rovaniemi the Northern Lights are visible from August to April, and the local photographers have filled the Rovaniemi social media again with fabulous images of this natural phenomena. We asked a local professional photographer to give tips for the beginning of the Northern Lights season.

Arctic wonders of the Northern Skies

Professional photographer Toni Eskelinen praises the Rovaniemi Autumn “fall is my favourite time of the year to catch those natural wonders of the Northern skies. For me personally it is about finding new ways to capture the Auroras and new elements to combine with the lights. So excited for the new season”.

Visit Rovaniemi Northern Lights Toni Eskelinen

Eskelinen trusts the data available off Northern Lights and calculates the chances also according to the cloud apps such as Windy and Ventusky. “Rovaniemi offers many places to capture the Northern Lights” Eskelinen ensures, and adds that Ounasvaara hill and the Arctic Circle Hiking Area are his personal favourites. The most picturesque spots he finds during his daily hikes and returns once the Northern Lights appear.

“Autumn in Rovaniemi is perfect for capturing the Northern Lights with reflections from the lakes and rivers” Eskelinen points out and continues “the main thing is to keep your eyes on the Northern sky and stay optimistic”.

A bunch of birch branches? Nope. This one is "saunavihta" or "saunavasta" in Finnish. An essential sauna tool. It's used in the sauna to enhance the effect of heat by beating onself with it. 

Midsummer celebration continues here in Rovaniemi, Lapland, and we guess that saunavihtas are in use in many Finnish cabins today! 🍃🍃
