Winter in Lapland starts in the beginning of December. This is also time when the sun hardly peaks above the horizon. Snow reflects the little rays of natural light and eases the Polar night. From January onwards days get longer and in April Lapland enjoys eight hours long days.

In the summer time reindeer graze free in Northern Finland, in the reindeer husbandry area, and in the winter time reindeer herders collect them in the fences. The strongest male reindeer are harnessed and taught to pull sleighs - just like indigineous Sámi people used to do.
