The Arctic Circle
Can you feel the difference after stepping over the line? There's magic in the air!
The Arctic Circle marks the area north of which the sun doesn't rise in the winter or set in the summer for at least 24 consecutive hours. The Arctic Circle divides the municipality of Pello in Lapland at the village of Juoksenki.
In Juoksenki there are services available for visitors and an Arctic Circle signpost for photographing.
In the summer you might want to take part in the event "Swim the Arctic Circle" and swim across the river at midnight!
