Kuusamo lies in the uplands of northeast Finland, a region of ravines and canyons in which lazy rivers suddenly transform themselves into gushing rapids. Kuusamo’s forests are still home to bears and wolves, as well as many smaller predators like foxes, raccoon dogs, mink and stoats. The region’s wild beauty has been captured by numerous artists, in particular by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who found that Kuusamo perfectly represented the idealised Finnish concept of nature.
