This guidebook describes the nature and wildlife of Finnish Lapland, one of the last great wildernesses of Europe. Huge expanses of silent coniferous forests, impenetrable bogs and vast open fells comprise the awe-inspiring landscape of Lapland. This new book is fully revised and updated and covers the Finnish part of Lapland, including the wildlife-rich region of Kuusamo, just south-east of the official border. It’s a superb region for birdwatching, for long trips on foot or ski and for watching the northern lights.

This second edition Crossbill Guide on Finnish Lapland gives 22 detailed route descriptions and 23 site descriptions covering the best sites for birdwatching, finding wildflowers, watching bears and other large mammals and experiencing the wilderness. This information comes with extensive descriptions of the ecology, geology, history and flora and fauna of Finnish Lapland.
