Summer in Finland lasts from June to August throughout the whole territory. This season experiences one more unique phenomenon, called the Midnight Sun. In Lapland, you can enjoy an everlasting day for two long months, from June to July. In the rest of the territory, it doesn't get dark totally neither—more like a twilight. The sun sets for only a few hours and then soon comes back again.
