Eight seasons

Unique fact is that there are eight different seasons in Kemijärvi. These are (freely translated): Winter, Winter-Spring, Spring, Spring-Summer, Summer, Autumn-Summer, Autumn, Autumn-Winter. One can see the seasonal changes reflected in the trees, animals, and even the shadows. You can feel it lingering on your skin, smell it on the air and hear its echoes by the lakeside.

One can even listen to nature changing its seasonal cloak, with the cuckoo bird singing, curlew crying quietly in the distance, the whooper swans clap their wings, and so much more.

Eurasian cranes flying in the sky indicates whether its spring-summer, summer or summer-autumn.

The midnight sun blazes as you walk towards the north. If one wishes to have a great view of such phenomenon, the best locations to see the sun are Patovaara, Perävaara and Kostamovaara. The mentioned locations are forested hills that surround Kemijärvi.

As the leaves start to change colour from green to vibrant warm shades of red and yellow, nature tells us we have reached ruska.

Autumn is a good time to head towards the forests full of ripe berries and big mushrooms just waiting to be picked up.

Winter starts off as dark, bleak and cold, but slowly changes into bright and sunny days during spring time. Only the people who live in Lapland can see and feel the change of eight seasons.
