The season of Menesjärvi
Autumn turns the wilderness that surrounds Menesjärvi into a riot of colour. The landscape is bathed in red, orange, yellow and all those colours you would associate with the Fall. Once darkness descends, the night sky is regularly ignited by the swirling Aurora whose majestic light is often reflected in the still, open waters of Lake Menesjärvi. Autumn is also a much warmer time of year so, if you enjoy some great hiking and warmer weather then our Autumn Wilderness Auroras could be the trip for you.
Winter brings deep, deep snow to Menesjärvi and a winter-white blanket covers the hills, lakes and frozen forests. This is a great time to explore the wilds of Lapland with dogs, snowmobiles and snowshoes and to see the local Sámi reindeer herders at work.
It is also a great time to see the Aurora. The lakes freeze providing the perfect viewing platforms for Aurora gazing. To stand on the thick ice of a Lappish lake and witness the full glory of the Aurora Borealis is one of life’s breathtaking moments.
Our four-night Northern Lights Adventure covers all those winter activities as well as exploring the local Sámi culture but with the focus always on seeing the Northern Lights. If you fancy a festive getaway in Lapland then take a look at our week-long Christmas trip at Menesjärvi or how about spending New Year somewhere very, very different indeed?
