The Finnish Lapland takes pride in being a winter wonderland for travelers who dream of breath-taking landscapes, blanketed in snow. However, there’s more to see in Finland’s northernmost region, as Antti Pietikäinen shows us in his drone photos of summer in Lapland’s foggy wilderness. In his aptly named Misty Forests of Lapland set, Antti, who is based in the municipality of Muonio, takes us around the old fjells, lakes, swamps, and rivers that come to life during the summer in Lapland. During this time, the dark winter days give way to 24-hour sunlight: a stark contrast that is part of the allure of the region.
