Finnish Lapland including Kuusamo
Dirk Hilbers et al
Lapland is Finland's northernmost province and lies almost entirely above the Arctic Circle. Large parts of the province are wilderness. Most of the land, particularly in the north, is in a pristine state. A visit to Finnish Lapland is an experience that is hard to capture in words. The land is vast and roads are few. The National Park of Lemmenjoki is, together with adjacent reserves in North Norway, the largest area in Europe without roads or driveable tracks. Deep in this wilderness enigmatic animals such as Brown Bear, Wolverine, Wolf, Lynx and Elk lurk. Yet at the same time, the Lapland experience unique wilderness induces reflection. The forests are, and feel, vast and empty. Their silence is all-encompassing and humbling. 224 pages.
