Refresh yourselves in summertime Forest Lapland.

Those who enjoy the water have dream destinations available from the hundreds of wilderness river regions; wide open banks ideal for fly fishing enthusiasts, the natural and challenging white water sections of the river for adventurers, as well as calm waters for lure fishing and relaxed canoeing. The clean forests produce plenty of mushrooms and berries such as for instance, lingonberries, blueberries and cloudberries. The district has indeed been awarded the title of the Municipality of Natural Organic Produce. The numerous hiking routes and nature trails offer you the chance to experience the spectacular landscapes of Forest Lapland. The forest vehicle roads are great routes for mountain biking.

Savukoski has fantastic settings for spending a wintry holiday. Far from the hustle and bustle of the real world, and far enough from the busy ski resorts, in the heart of an area of peace and tranquillity. Nevertheless, the nearest ski resorts of Salla and Pyhä are only about an hour’s drive away. In the wilderness region of Savukoski, you can experience snowmobiling, ride a husky-driven sled or reindeer sleigh, go ice fishing or take a day-trip cross-country skiing in the Urho Kekkonen National Park, or you may even like to try some snowshoe hiking in the nearby surroundings.
