Why locals love it

The Kivelä's Farm in Salla's Paloperä reflects the construction site and construction method of the 18th century wilderness settlement in the northern parts of Northeast Finland. Kivelän square yard includes two residential buildings, two of the barn, sheds and sauna. The oldest building in 1688 built the fish-shed.

Why you should visit it

Unlike the rest of Northeast Finland, birch farming was not as important a sector in Salla as in the southern parts of Northeast Finland. In Salla, Finnish settlers adopted reindeer husbandry from the Sámi. Unlike Sámi reindeer husbandry, reindeer were gathered for the winter and released into the pasture for the summer.
