The land

Laponia is not a wilderness. People have lived here for many millennia without leaving any traces. A hearth, a barely discernible path or a sparsely marked trail on the bare mountain are all you see of people’s lives in the past.

A meeting with the monarch of the mountains, the imposing Ráhpa Valley moose, or with the little Marsh Lousewort in the water spring. The quaking wetlands of Muttos or the steep slopes of Sarek. Many very special nature experiences await you. At the same time, a hike in Laponia is a lesson in how today’s landscape was once shaped by the ice, water and wind that have worn, shattered and transported rock and earth.
