Back Download

The Northern Lights are visible for up to 200 nights per year in Finnish Lapland. With the Laplication app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, users do not have to travel to the northern edge of Finland in order to experience it for themselves. Utilising augmented reality technology, users simply point their smartphone camera at the sky, while GPS data and the phone’s compass provide the distance and directions to Lapland. Furthermore, the application includes travel information and pictures from the region.
