The Lapland churches are nice places
for resting while travelling

Churches of Lapland

asele church 2 Many of the Lapland churches are open during the summer months. There are roadside churches both in Finnish Lapland, Norwegian Lapland and Swedish Lapland.

A roadside church is meant to be a different kind of a stop, a resting place both for your body and yor soul. In these churches you can make a stop from the travelling routine. The churches are nice places for meditation and even prayer. Sometimes you can listen to music as well.

A roadside church is a church that:
  • is close to a main road
  • is open for at least three weeks during summer, at least five days a week and at least five hours a day
  • has hosts who serves soft drinks and bisquites
  • has some kind of information material
  • has toilets for guests
