The winter in Lapland is tough for everyone because of the darkness and the cold but now its our time to enjoy the light! The Midnight sun and then endless days is here, the sun will from now on stay above the horizon for approximately 1700 hours (70 days).
From minus degrees in Lapland to +20´C and snow melting away in front of our eyes means of course very high water levels. We have at the momet Class 2 and 3 warnings in the north parts of Finland and Sweden for high water levels that will hopefully stabilize in the end of the week. We don´t recomend anyone to paddle the main rivers at the moment because the water flow shows 35 000 cubic / second in the Torne River at this point but also because of the risk of debris that may be in the water because of the high flows.
You can follow the water levels at swedish SMHI or just send us a email if you want a daily update!
