Midnight sun

Experience the magic of the Midnight Sun!

The light and the colors of the Arctic summer night are something you've never seen before. The day seems to carry on forever, your body does not know what time of the day it is and you can explore the adventures of the nature until late night. It simply never gets dark. 

In Kuusamo, the nightless night lasts from around mid-June till the end of the June. During this period the sun does not set at all, but shines throughout the night. The nights of May and July are also very bright, and the sun drops below the horizon for just a short moment.

World-class sunsets

World-famous guests are fascinated by our summer, too. Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen recorded and filmed a unique version of her favourite track “The Sound” live in the middle of Pyhäjärvi lake in Ruka-Kuusamo. The recording took place on a pier at Pyhäpiilo sauna resort under the amazing Arctic light. Carly recalls it as an unforgettable experience for her and her band.

“As  soon as we were wrapped none of us wanted to go back to the hotel, so we all stayed and watched sunset. I think it was the most beautiful thing any of us have ever seen.”
