Welcome to Fell Lapland Visitor Centre

Fell Lapland Visitor Centre is perfect for those keen to learn about fell nature, nomadic Sámi culture, notable figures in Enontekiö's past and present, and the travellers of the North.  In the polar nights of winter and the sunlit summer nights, Hetta's open pine and birch forests give a powerful taste of the real Lapland.
