Escape the urban bustle at Korouoma Canyon and Syvasenvaara Fell. Kids will enjoy Ranua Zoo and Napapiirin Porofarmi. Change things up with a short trip to Pyha-Luosto National Park in Pyhatunturi (about 1h 35 min away). The adventure continues: cast your line with a fishing tour.

Landmarks · Safaris · Nightlife
The wild expanses of Lapland promise spectacular scenery, adventure, and rich cultural experiences. As the country's northernmost region, it sits well above the Arctic Circle. Despite also being the largest region, in Lapland just 3.4 percent of the Finnish population calls this great stretch of land home, leaving plenty of room for pristine lakes, dense forest, and seven unspoiled national parks. An abundance of well-marked trails await hikers of all levels, while more remote and rugged adventures beckon experienced explorers. Music is of particular importance in these parts, so try to catch a concert or dance performance during your stay.
