Border reopening under midnight sun in Lapland

Reopening the border has some peculiarities in the remote lands of the Arctic Circle, where daylight shines 24 hours a day.

On Monday 15 June at 00:00, a Finnish border guard officer dismantles a traffic light that prevented visitors from crossing into Finland in Nuorgam, a village of 200 inhabitants in the northernmost part of the country.
