Finnish Lapland

Finnish Lapland is located in the Arctic far north of Finland.

This is the Wild North of Finland and the last refuge of Finland’s Sámi people, who subsist on reindeer herding and, increasingly, tourism.

The area is known for its endless pine forests and the treeless rounded fells (tunturi) poking out between them.

Several national parks can be found in Lapland with marked hiking paths and log cabins open to the public for free.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
