Waking up early to see the sunrise isn’t everybody’s favourite way to start the day. Luckily the winter and summer season here in Finland have their own advantages. In winter the sun rises late in the Oulu area (or not at all up North), in summer very early. In fact so early, it’s wise to stay up after sunset and go to bed after sunrise.
One summer ‘morning’ I went to Lake Papinjärvi in Oulunsalo to see a golden sunrise. A gentle breeze made the waves reflecting the colours of the sky, a lovely end of the day.
