Implementation area of the project 

The main implementation area of the LANDSCAPE LAB project was the Ounasselkä fell area, a chain of round-topped fells modified by the ice ages and weathering and located in north-western Finnish Lapland.  

The tourist destinations of the Ounasselkä area, Levi, Pallas and Ylläs, draw the main part of the nature-based tourism volume in Finland.  

The northern, fragile nature and the vicinity of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park set challenges of their own to the promotion of sustainable tourism.

Arktikum-house located along the Ounas -river in Rovaniemi act as an ENTRANCE LAB of the project.
