Kemijärvi occupies a charming site at a bend in the River Kemijoki which slackens at this point, its gentle waters encircling the little town. It is the starting point for numerous walks and excursions in Lapland. The Pyhä-Luosto National Park mainly comprises a chain of craggy mountains, with ancient sacred Sami sites. Straddling the polar circle, Suomutunturi - Mt Suomu - is one of the largest winter sports resorts.
