Lapland clean water is a great blessing
Lapland clean water
The Lapland clean water came into my mind as the horrible pictures from earthquake-ridden Port-au-Prince rolled over my TV-screen.
People were fighting to get clean water.
Water is one of the greatest blessings given mankind. We who live in Lapland feel that we are so lucky. We are in a peaceful corner
of the world. In addition to the peace, we can use as much fresh water as we like. Think of that. No restrictions at all.
Everyone deserves clean water because a healthy life is sustained through food, clean water and clean air. Sitting here in Lapland
at my PC I think that we often take our clean, beautiful water for granted .
Next to Lapland's fresh air, there is no other element of creation more important to sustain life than pure water. And we still have
plenty of it.

In most parts of Lapland you can just cup your hand and drink water directly from a lake or a river or a brook.
The nice thing is also that most often rain comes "in due season" here in Lapland. So far we haven't had droughts or flood catastrophes.
More and more places of the world there is going to erupt wars on scarce fresh water resources.
Again, we are the lucky guys. Fresh
water for everyone. And no need to buy it in bottles. Tests have shown that water taken directly from the tap in many cases is better
than the bottled water.
Quality life in Lapland
An unspoilt environment, clean drinking water, as well as a high level of social security, contribute to the quality of living in Lapland.
Nature conservation is important in Lapland and in the Nordic countries in general.
Lapland has the largest natural parks and the last untouched wilderness areas in Western Europe. The network of protected areas
in Finland, Norway and Sweden is one of the regions attractions for you as a tourist. Clean lakes and rivers to fish. Clean water
to make your coffee from in the wilderness. And clean water to swim in.
In winter you can drill a water hole in an icecovered lake and gulp down mouthfuls of the freshest and coldest drinking water you
can imagine. And you can even fish through the same hole.
Lapland is an eldorado for all lovers of untouched nature and fresh water. The more we watch TV from Haïti, the more we should
appriciate our tremendous water blessings. Come and see for yourself!
