Personally I believe that the increased expression of the natural beauty and its relation to urban development are what has given in what many call the gates of paradise to Finland, among many of the Scandinavian countries. So today I invite you to discover the horizons of Lapland with a walk through Kuusamo.
Lapland is dominated by water. It offers the best opportunities for the traveler who loves rural tourism. Beginning in Kuusamo, located in the northern part of Finland is this small hidden village from where you start with a walk that lasts four days through rivers, mountains, lakes, crossing the Oulanka shelter along the Savinajoki and Kikanjoki rivers where you will find some shelters installed by local residents.
If you go prepared and psyched there, going by the love of nature and not with the desire for the usual services, then it shall count and be an amazing trip for you! Depending on what you prefer, you can camp there on an ideal and quiet lakeshore to enjoy a quiet dinner at night by the fire under the stars!
