The belief of six months 24h hours of daylight and six months of 24h of night is just that, a belief far away from reality.
Around December and January we will experience the shortest days, and during June and July we don't switch on the lights at home.
Both periods, during the shortest days in winter and the midnight sun in summer, are very exotic for the travellers.
Check the chart in this post to see how many hours of daylight you will enjoy when you visit us. The chart is based in Rovaniemi, but is a good reference for other destinations in Lapland too.
