Lemmenjoki National Park

Lemmenjoki beckons those who want a taste of authentic, distant Finland. Poking into the Arctic Circle on the edge of the territory of the Sami reindeer herders, it’s got wooded fells and wide rivers.

Wintertime, on the other hand, brings mainly darkness and potential sightings of the Aurora Borealis.
