Finland offers diverse landscapes and filming possibilities throughout the year thanks to its unique natural conditions – from midnight sun and summer heat to long winters and guaranteed snow.

With a thousand kilometers of coastline, over 188,000 lakes and almost as many islands, vibrant modern cities, charming old wooden towns and almost 40 national parks, Finland has it all.

LOCATIONS ACROSS FOUR SEASONS

Spring

In springtime, there is still plenty of snow across the country and also many hours of daylight. Not only are conditions perfect to film winter scenes, but the sun's warmth is also a welcome addition.

Spring
Summer

24 hours of daylight during the midsummer months allows for longer production shooting days. Finnish summer days are not only endless, but warm too.

Summer

Finland has four distinct seasons with unique natural conditions in which to film – from the midnight sun and summer heat to snow and extreme cold.

Autumn/Fall

The Finnish summer ends in an explosion of colour, known as ‘ruska’, which is particularly beautiful in the forests and on the fells of Lapland.

Autumn/Fall
Winter

During the polar nights, the landscape can be magically lit by the starry sky and the vibrant Northern Lights seem to dance upon the snow. The sun sits slow on the horizon during the winter days.

UNIQUE LIGHT

Thanks to the country’s high latitude, the angle of sunlight is lower. This creates a unique light ambience, as well as magical hours, that can last for exceptionally long periods.
