In the northern parts of the Baltic Sea, where Finland and Sweden share a border, there is an are recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is a beautiful archipelago with a few thousand small islands shared between the two countries. The geological processes in the region constantly change the landscape by uniting or dividing islands or emerging new ones out of the water. The High Coast/Kvarken archipelago is remarkable during wintertime, when the sea is especially tumultuous.

There is no way not to mention Lapland – the famous wild territory of the north. Lapland is a vast northern territory shared by Sweden and Finland, populated with indigenous tribes and wild animals, enduring the vicious arctic winters. The Finnish territory of Lapland is divided into Forest-Lapland mostly to the south and Fell-Lapland to the north. The two are also different in terms of geography, hence the names. Fell-Lapland is located in the mountain fells of the Scandinavian Mountain range. The Lapland region is truly wild, thus conservation is of great importance and the area includes more than 20 natural and wilderness parks, such as the Urho Kekkonen and the Lemmenjoki National park.
