Lapland is the most northern part of Europe. But it is only three hours from most of the large cities in Europe. Note that from mid November to the end of January, they are 4 to 5 hours of an unusual type of light, which is actually a little grey and it is called Kamos. It lasts from 9 in the morning untill 2 in the afternoon. The temperatures at that time vary between -10 degrees centigrade and -15 degrees centigrade. (Or between 14 degrees Fahrenheit and 5 degrees Fahrenheit.)
In contrast, starting around the beginning of March until the end of April, the sun sets much later and you can take advantage of long evenings with moderate temperatures.
