Why You Should Visit Rovaniemi in November

Rovaniemi in November, what is it all about, what should you expect, and why you should visit? In November, as Rovaniemi is preparing for the busy Christmas season, nature is preparing itself for the winter. Meanwhile, days are getting even shorter as we get closer to polar night. Check out the reasons why you should visit Rovaniemi in November below, book our Early Winter with Arctic Animals Holiday Package, and be one of the first to experience snow in Rovaniemi next winter!

Weather Rovaniemi in November

In November, nature is preparing itself for the winter. The colorful leaves have fallen off trees, and temperatures have dropped way below zero degrees Celsius. Daylight decreases from about eight to three hours, and by the end of the month, permanent snow has covered the ground.

You are to expect different kinds of weather; sunny and cold days as well as rain and snow storms. The usual day temperatures in November vary between -10 to 5 degrees Celsius.

Polar Night and Northern Lights

Polar Night doesn’t mean only cozy darkness; it also means more hours in the night to catch the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights. In November, it is not impossible to catch Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky above Rovaniemi already at 5 PM. You can admire the night sky either from the comfort of your glass igloo, or hunt for the Northern Lights. For example, you can hunt the Aurora Borealis with horses or reindeer!

Is There Snow Rovaniemi in November

As November is the beginning of winter, the amount of snow is uncertain. This means, that natural snow might come and go, as the ground is not totally frozen yet. However, the permanent snow cover lasting throughout the winter usually lands in November.

Though there might not be natural snow in Rovaniemi in November, we will have snow in Apukka Resort. We want to make sure our November guests have the winter experiences they are looking for, so we are storing snow over the summer from last winter. This stored snow, along with cannoned snow, will make it possible for us to operate tours on snow already on the 13th of November 2023!
