When it comes to attractions in the Salla region, the emphasis is mainly on the nature experiences offered by the wilderness around us and our eventful war history. Salla is located in the middle of the greatest wilderness area in Europe, opening up to the east of Tuntsa. The most notable nature destinations can be found in the Tuntsa wilderness area in northern Salla and in the Oulanka National Park in southern Salla.
In Salla, it is possible to visit authentic Second World War battlefields and the war memorials erected in various parts of the municipality after the wars.
You should not forget to visit our beautiful stone church either, open for tourists every day of the week in the summer.
