Summer would be great to enjoy Midnight sun. Autumn is perfect for colours, berries and nature exploring. But the best time to stay at Glass Igloos is from end of November till mid April to get as much as possible from the Lapland trip, activities and scenery, and more chanses to see the Northern Lights.

* Christmas and New Year time is very popular season in Lapland and especially at Rovaniemi area. So if you plan your holidays for the same period, be prepared to see a lot of people at main attraction sites, book activities in advance to get available spots and pay more for accommodation as it is a high season.
