About this book

This new Crossbill Guide to Finnish Lapland is fully revised and updated. It describes the nature and wildlife of Finnish Lapland, one of the last great wildernesses of Europe.

Lapland is Finland's northernmost province and lies almost entirely above the Arctic Circle. A visit to Finnish Lapland is an experience that is hard to capture in words. The land is vast and roads are few. Deep in this wilderness, animals, such as Brown Bear, Wolverine, Wolf, Lynx and Elk, roam. Huge expanses of coniferous forests, impenetrable bogs and vast open fells make up this awe-inspiring landscape.

As any Crossbill Guide, this title gives 22 detailed route descriptions and 23 site descriptions. Topics include:
- Landscape history
- Ecosystems
- Geology
- Flora and Fauna
- Where to watch birds
- Finding orchids and other wildflowers

The Crossbill Guide to Finnish Lapland, Including Kuusamo region introduces you to a fascinating northern wilderness and provides you with itineraries so you can discover the area at your own pace.
