Climate

Indian Summer in the Northern Hemisphere

The climate in Western Lapland is typically western continental. That means little rainfall and warm temperatures with heights over 20 degrees. Way beyond the polar circle!.

Just take a look at the weather chart. The forecasts usually live up to their promises!

Certain information you should know about the winter in Lapland:

First of all, you definitely need to dress warmly. But: That does not necessarily mean that you have to wear jacket over jacket and look like Sir Bibendum! If you stay at one of our Lappland Dream vacation homes, you will find a whole lot of equipment that will keep you warm. Arctic snow boots, pants and jackets are stored for you and will keep you warm and cozy while experiencing the landscape of beautiful Lapland. All of the equipment is by the well-known brand Reima, one of the world’s best producers of this kind of clothing. Not only is it fashionable and high-end, but it will keep you warm. We will make sure that you will be perfectly equipped from head to toe. Therefore, special boots, arctic overalls, gloves, masks, furred hats and helmets for winter sport activities await you.

So, even if the thermometer shows 10, 20 or 30 degrees below 0, you do not have to worry.

On top of that, the winter in Lapland is different from the winters we know. Whereas the winter in Central Europe is humid and wet, in Lapland, it is rather dry. This is good and bad: Good news is you won’t feel the cold as much. Bad news is: it is a lot harder to build a snowman or have a snow fight – because of the lacking wetness, the snow simply will not stick together. It is purely powdery – a skiers dream!
