The coming of spring varies greatly by location. The further north you go, the later spring comes. Mainly there are only two spring months found in Finland—April and May.

Days get longer and warmer very fast. The longest spring season can be found in the marine and coastal regions.

But for foreigners this season is still quite cold as it rarely gets warmer than 10°C. When everything starts melting in mid-April, the Lapland region welcomes spring only in mid-May. The ice melts soon after the snow has gone, usually in late April-May. In Lapland the lakes become ice-free only in June. The blooming season in the whole territory, except Lapland, starts in May.
