In My Heart
Are Connected to Nature
|To a large extent our attractions and activities are connected with what nature has to give. An example of such nature activities are fishing in lakes and rivers and also deep sea fishing in the Arctic Ocean. Salmon fishing is a great activity in many of the rivers.|
What about berry and mushroom picking?The right of public access in all of Lapland gives you the possibility to roam freely and utilize the natural resouces in simple ways, like at Ranua in Finnish Lapland. See photo above from Hillakatu (Cloudberry Street). This is one of the nature activities you can enjoy here. Due to the right of public access, you can freely eat cloudberries as go. But if you want to pick and take them with you, please, check local rules before picking.
Water ActivitiesLapland is blessed with many rivers and lakes. In addition there is the Arctic Ocean. In addition to fishing, there are many other water activities. Activities connected to different kinds of vessels are popular. Let's just mention:
Activities and attractions connected to the Lapps

Therefore many of the Lapland attractions and activities are connected to the reindeer, to the traditional Lapp way of life. What kind of Lapland sights are you looking for? There should be something for you if you come with your family or if you come alone.
