Original Lapland – Our Story

See the text in English

See the text in the original language

This is a story of the Tornio River Valley and Lapland, which was originally the same country on both sides of the river.
It was born in an international project called Along the River to the Arctic – Original Lapland, in which they have activated and trained small local actors and villages for tourism business.

Tämä on tarina Tornionjokilaaksosta ja Lapista, joka aikoinaan oli samaa maata molemmin puolin jokea.

Tarina on toteutettu kansainvälisessä kylämatkailun kehittämishankkeessa “Väylänvartta tunturiin ja takaisin – Alkuperäinen Lappi”
