It is said that each place has its own charm, and no one would disagree when we say that Heart of Lapland is a very charming place indeed, with plenty of small picturesque islands in the archipelago with magnificent scenery as well as a fascinating history. Locals inviting guests for a dance on a balmy summer evening and children playing outdoors making friends for life, are not rare sights.
