Polar Night Magic – winter’s many faces
Winter in Finland is a magical season. Completely still but mighty, pitch black yet dazzlingly bright. It is enigmatic and merciless, commanding great respect.
Many beliefs and rituals have been borne from the Nordic people’s attempts to come to terms with this capricious season. When you take note of what you see as well as that which you cannot see and learn to read the signs and follow the course of nature, winter will reward you.
In Lapland, swapping the hustle and bustle of ski resorts and cities to the peace and quiet of the wilderness takes mere minutes.
