Journey: Authentic villages of Lapland

Lapland is known for its pristine, arctic nature and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The region is also the home of many unique villages and towns to explore in the summer time. This journey takes you on a tour of the most interesting locations and experiences in northern Finland. The tour starts in Levi. The easiest way to get to Levi is to fly to Kittilä and continue by car. We recommend choosing an electric car or a hybrid model for a lower carbon footprint.

A Guided Visit to Särestöniemi Art Museum

The first Levi-region location is the Särestöniemi Art Museum. The museum located in Kaukonen, Kittilä displays the art and working environment of Reidar Särestöniemi, who was the most remarkable Lappish artist of his time. His most well-known works are his large, colourful oil paintings from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The museum by the river Ounas is a unique combination of art, architecture, nature, and history.
