Discover with us the beauty of Lapland with its snowy landscapes and take photos of this winter wonderland. Enjoy a day in the middle of nature! Riisitunturi National Park is a must-do in Lapland!

Come and discover with us the magnificent Riisitunturi National Park and its snowy trees located 160 kilometres from the city centre of Rovaniemi.

At the beginning of winter, the trees begin to be covered with snow. Riisitunturi National Park is renowned as one of the most beautiful places in Lapland due to its location.

"Would March be a good month to photograph snow laden trees in golden light, and also to photograph the Northern lights ?"

Response from organiser:

Thank you for contacting us! According to previous years in March we still have quite a lot of snow, but please note that every year the snow condition is different. Northern Lights are visible from September to April, as long as the sky is dark enough there will be chance to see the Northern Lights, but it is natural phenomenon therefore we can not guarantee the sightseeing of Northern Lights. If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
