Enontekiö – RealLapland
Enontekiö is located in the northernmost Finland and is also one of Finland ’s most sparsely populated and most genuine regions. More than 60 % of all Finnish fells are located in Enontekiö. This beautiful region is blessed with arctic flat-top mountains and large wilderness areas. The endless expanses of wilderness encompass the visitor with peace and silence.
Enontekiö is part of Sámi Homeland area. The church village of Enontekiö (also called Hetta), situated on the shore of Ounasjärvi Lake, has lost very little of its original character. Enontekiö is still an authentic village without mass tourism and that is why visitors in Enontekiö feel like family friends of the locals. Genuine hospitality is part of the local everyday life. In Enontekiö we still follow a traditional and peaceful way of life, which only few can nowadays boast of. Though Enontekiö is a small and authentic village we have all kinds of activities you want to experience in Lapland and even lots of more of which you can’t even imagine.
