When the Midnight Sun shines, Ranua locals grab their buckets, put on their boots, and hit the swamps in search of an elusive Arctic delicacy. Every July—for just three weeks—this remote part of Finnish Lapland succumbs to cloudberry fever, when long days are spent picking, visiting fruit markets, and feasting on the luscious berries. This is Finland's self-defined 'cloudberry capital', and visitors can join in the fun.
