Do’s and don’ts

Common courtesy, common sense, and special regulations

In the World Heritage Site, special regulations apply to visitors, since large parts of Laponia are national parks and nature reserves. The regulations concern what you are allowed to do when you are in Laponia.

However, you must also be familiar with the important regulations that apply to everyone who is here.


Dispensations and permits

It is possible to receive dispensation or a permit to carry out activities that are not permitted under the regulations. To receive dispensation or permits, contact the County Administrative Board in Norrbotten County. Laponiatjuottjudus, which administrates Laponia World Heritage Site, is not an authority, but advises the County Administrative Board. Read more.
