Summer Hiking in Finland with Huskies at Kakslauttanen

summer husky hike at kakslauttanen


Kakslauttanen is home to the famous Glass Igloos, an incredible way of viewing the Northern lights during winter time. There is another side to Kakslauttanen though, summer here is intense - the sun never sets between mid-May and early August. This is not to suggest a scorching heat; the weather will be perfect for hiking up and down the fells during the day and night if you wish.
