The Vätsäri Wilderness Area was established in North Lapland in 1991 and covers an area of 1550 km². The Vätsäri area is part of the Finnish-Norwegian-Russian protected area Pasvik-Inari Trilateral Park.
The rough, rocky landscape is a mosaic of pine forests, moors and water. The northeastern part, the actual Vätsäri highlands, rises as a treeless fall ridge.
Vätsäri is one of the most remote places in Europe with many lakes, untouched landscape and wild nature. The local Sámi still live there and tend to reindeer. The Sámi are an indigenous people. Lapland never had its own statehood and is now divided between the four states of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. A beautiful place in the arctic with lots of fish and wild animals.
So exactly the right place for pack tractors who are looking for adventure.
