Once the day’s work is done, you are free to do what makes you happy.

In the winter, the Urho Kekkonen National Park, for example, has about 200 kilometers of well-maintained cross-country skiing trails. There are also 15 ski slopes right at the border of the National Park.

Or why not to get to know the three indigenous Sámi cultures in the area or the present and the past of the gold digging saga of Lapland. Tankavaara is home to the only international Gold Prospector Museum in the world. Inari offers the Sámi Cultural Centre, and Utsjoki is the only municipality in Finland where the majority of inhabitants are Sámi.

Or enjoy the multitude of events in the region. Right behind the corner you’ll have an access to a variety of entertainment and cultural events from karaoke to the Polar Night Jazz festival, from theater to troubadours and art exhibitions, and from reindeer racing to Sámi music.
