LEMMENJOKI

Valley of the Golden River

Finland’s largest national park is one of the best for accessibility. River boats take visitors along the Lemmenjoki River stretching tens of kilometres through canyons and deep into the wilderness of the national park to admire its sights, such as the Ravadasköngäs waterfall standing at a height of ten metres. Lemmenjoki is also the locations of the famous gold prospecting grounds, and gold diggers still work there to this day. For those looking for peace and tranquillity, the expansive park has areas where you can hike for days without seeing anyone else around. The Lemmenjoki Nature Information Hut is a good place to start exploring the national park. The Sámi villages of Lemmenjoki will introduce you to workshops of local artisans, reindeer husbandry and local culture. In the winter, the expansive region provides excellent routes for cross-country skiers and snowmobile riders all the way to Inari and the Levi resort. Accommodation and activity services are available for visitors all year round from Lemmenjoki and the village of Menesjärvi on the shores of a beautiful lake.
