KAAMANEN

The Village of Four Winds

Four is a symbolic number for Kaamanen. This little Inari Sámi village is known as the borderland of four tribes and the crossroads of four important roads. Indeed, Kaamanen is a rendezvous point offering road and snowmobile route connections north, east, south and west. Kaamanen has a strong fishing and hunting culture. Trout and grayling migrate along the Kaamasjoki River and other waterways in the region. Abundant with wild fowl, the district is internationally renowned among ornithologists and the area has received praise from bird photographers as being a dream location. At the feeding spots in Kaamanen, you can sport many species of Arctic birds, and the chances of spotting these species elsewhere are very slim. The wilderness district of the Muotkatunturi fell highland opening up to the west of Kaamanen does not have any marked hiking trails, but the more experienced hiker will be able to enjoy the most beautiful landscapes with fells and winding rivers.
