Where we are
Arctic Kemi – all year round
Arctic has been often considered to be cold, snowy and icy, however, arctic also has its own pace of season changes, each offers us different vibes in different times of the year. The arctic, as concept, contains much more though; it is the core of the nature in Lapland, the essence of the character of its people. Arctic means a bunch of wonderful things, original opposites. In winter you’ll see abundant snow, ice and experience the dark and cold polar nights, in summer, you can enjoy the midnight sunshine and the nightless night. In autumn, leaf colour changes from summer green to what we call “Ruska” in Finnish, sun starts shining again in spring time, even though there is still thick snow on the ground, which makes it extremely bright when the sun shines.
Kemi locates in Sea Lapland
Lapland is covered vastly by forests, the more north you go, the landscape changes, with hills showing up. As we are the southernmost city of Lapland and we are situated at the Bothnian Bay the sea is our unique resource that enables a variety of activities on the sea – and the sea freezes over from December to April. Due to this excellence in location, we offer our visitors experience that elsewhere in Lapland couldn’t.

Get inspired by our activities!
Lapponia products are inspired by the magical arctic nature of Finnish Lapland, its changing seasons, midnight sun, northern lights, freshness of water springs and strong spirit of local people. Lapland has its own, unique magic which you can feel with all your five senses.
Christmas in Lapland is a thing everyone should experience at least once in their life. Soft snowdrifts, snow crunching under your boots, smoke coming up from sauna chimneys and jingle bells on reindeer, jingling all the way. This is another source of inspiration for our traditional products.
We focus on working with environmentally friendly, natural materials and sustainable production. We have been offering high quality clothes and accessories since 1993. Our products are supplied to souvenir shops across Europe. We also participate in market events in Finland and abroad.
