Lemmenjoki National Park is the best destination for those who enjoy hiking. It is the biggest National Park in Finland, and also one of the largest in the whole Europe’s most extensive uninhabited and roadless backwoods. There are campfire places, marked trails, rental and open wilderness huts in the basic zone of the National Park to make trekking easier. A boat trip in the wilderness-like valley of Lemmenjoki River is an experience in itself.
Lemmenjoki National Park borders on Övre Anarjokka National Park in Norway. In addition to nature conservation, the park is also important to wilderness trekking and reindeer herding.
In the Lemmenjoki National Park one can find great rivers alternate with forests. The reasonably permanent populations of the Brown Bear and the Golden Eagle indicate the wilderness-like nature of the National Park. The Moose population is abundant, considering the arctic conditions of the Northern Lapland.
