Lapps have lived in the region for thousands of years pursuing hunting and fishing as a way of life. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? The Finns thought so too and began to settle in the area in the 18th century. During the 19th century the cultures began to mix and the traditional Lapp culture began to fade. Although the Lapps have assimilated in the city the culture is still strong in the countryside. Rent a car and visit some of the outlying villages, be sure to bring a little extra money as traditional Lapp handiwork is very colorful and you will be tempted to own some. Kuusamo is the starting point for one of the best-known hiking routes in Finland.
