Local Life Tours in Autumn

Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi, Lapland

Our Local Life Excursions in Autumn

( September – November )

Autumn is one of the best times to experience Lappish local life. Then people run to the forests and swamps to pick berries and enjoy the beautiful outdoors in hiking routes and natural attractions. The darkening nights are great for cultural activities and just cozying by the fire. So come to Lapland in autumn to live a few days like a local!

All our activities start from Apukka Resort, Tutkijantie 28, 96900 Rovaniemi.

Our local life tours combine local culture and lifestyle, nature and animals. Our knowledgeable guides lead you deep into the life of Lappish people and teach you a lot about Arctic flora and fauna. We also have a trip to meet local artisans Irene and Ari at their workshop and home. This lovely couple makes souvenirs, utensils, and art from natural materials like reindeer horn and bone, leather, and wood.

Nature is a big part of the everyday life of all Lappish people. For example, they know how it will be today and coming days whenever you ask them about the weather. The beginning of the Northern Lights season in late August is the note for locals that autumn is here and winter is not that far either.

Autumn is not one, but the weather and nature around us are changing daily. In September, it’s time to enjoy the last warm days and admire Autumn colours in forests, hills, and bogs. October is the time for the first frosty nights and the first snowfall. In November, we head towards the darkest time of the year. Luckily beautiful white snow cover (hopefully permanent) falls and brightens the Arctic world.
