original lapland harmaa kartta-ok

Original Lapland is an 18 month long collaborative to develop the visiting industry in Torne valley, on both sides of the border river. By inspiring and informing about entrepreneurship and the potential of the area, at the same time as we increase the cross-border cooperation – we hope to contribute to sustainable growth.

This project is made specifically for measures relating to border village tourism the state border, as well as deepen the activities on the Finnish side companies.
The measures are implemented by the villages of the region and by various organizations in cooperation with the region’s businesses. In co-operation with strong players, a cooperation model will be created in the project, which will continue as concrete results after the project.

Through field trips, workshops, matchmaking, a study trip and a digital platform we’re aiming to create more entrepreneurs, colliding tourism centers and villages closer together and to be profiled as a cross border village, cultural and wildlife travel location.
