Culture

Inspiration and Tranquility

Unique nature, polar nights, midnight sun, Sami traditions, reindeer herding and Lappish soul are sources of inspiration for many local artists. The contrasts between the east and the west, the Arctic Ocean and Lappish fells and light and darkness give the local culture its multi-faceted features.

There are few art galleries in the world where you can feel that you are part of nature. Let the silent, strong colours of the paintings hanging on the grey log walls speak to you. Feel the culture of being a living part of nature and Lappish reality that the local artists convey to you. It is an experience that we truly recommend to all visitors to Lapland.

Explore the myths of the Sami, the only indigenous people in the European Union. Visit Siida, the centre of Sami culture in Inari or Arktikum, the Arctic centre in Rovaniemi. Admire the beauty of colourful Sami costumes, listen to old legends and explore Nordic nature, its animals and the incredible history of Lapland.
