The Blue Light Festival 2012
December 17th -19th
Vuollerim, by the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland.
Come… Let the stillness and breathtaking beauty of the blue light of Swedish Lapland surround you. Take part of a unique and peaceful festival that honors this pure phenomenon. The cause of the blue light rarity is the combination of the sun never rising above the horizon, as well as the sunlight creating an optical anomaly.
The light is only visible near the Arctic Circle for 6-7 weeks in December and January. This time of year makes for great experiences!
Lapland Vuollerim Welcomes You has received the quality label “Nature’s Best”, the first national quality label for nature tours in Europe. Lapland Vuollerim’s products have been certified as a result of the company’s emphasis on providing genuine, authentic, and quality experiences together with the locals. The love for the village and the surrounding nature is the drive for developing the area in the most sustainable way.
