Traditions and nature
- Utsjoki is the only Finnish municipal with Sámi majority. In our holiday village you can experience the Sámi culture in detail, especially in the colors and decorations of the restaurant and in the menu.
- The river Teno has brought life to the village for a few centuries and it is the largest and most significant salmon river in europe. We honor our river, because it brings us our living. We do not litter or disturb the fish and animals of the river. Even from the teracce of the restaurant you might see a fox running, eagle flying or a salmon jumping. The water is drinkable almost everywhere in Utsjoki.
