When it comes to nature, Finnish Lapland offers a diverse palette of filming opportunities. Forests occupy large areas of Lapland while the north's arctic fells offer a deforested scenery. There are 19.923 lakes in Lapland, most of which are very small, and four big rivers; Ivalonjoki, Kemijoki, Lemmenjoki, and Tornionjoki.
There are several definitions as to how Lapland is regionally divided, one of them being tourism regions:
Typical for Lapland's nature are swamps, highlands and plains. In addition to land, the scenery is enriched by lakes of all sizes and fast flowing rivers. For example, Finland's longest river Kemijoki flows 550 km through Lapland and Finland.
The most common trees in Lapland are Pine, Spruce, and Birch. The Lappish forests are known for their remarkably colourful autumn foliage. The very northernmost parts of the region are Arctic Tundra with no trees at all.
Rich fauna with reindeer and smaller mammals, not forgetting a small number of wolves and bears among other wildlife, roam the lands of Finnish Lapland. There are more reindeer (around 200.000) than inhabitants (around 180.000) living in Lapland.
The infamous mosquitos of Lapland are a bit annoying, but totally harmless as they don't carry any diseases. Widely available insect repellents give an adequate protection on personal level while moving outdoors in summertime. In case of extended stay on one location, a mosquito trap can be used to keep the airspace clean.
