 I've been away but not far. I was in Luosto. If you want to travel to Finland and experience silence and nature in quiet and peace away from the most popular targets going to Luosto region on summer time is one good option. It is a ski resort on the wintertime but quite dead what comes to the summer. But they still are there. On the summer season the costs are low, tourists are away and silence is around.

I was there because of LuostoClassic. My DearFriendL invited me to experience the classic music festival in the nature. It is high level event with famous artists but still rural and isolated with small audience compared to other festivals. It is a great experience also to the artists. If you start to plan your trip notice that you need your outdoor clothes despite you'd be in a classic music concert. High heels and evening dresses can be left home. The music itself is the point; not showing your wardrobe around.

We stayed in a cosy log cabin. Staying was cheap compared to peak season prices in Finland. We paid just 56€ per night (breakfast, sheets and cleaning not included).

The cabin was by a lake and very close to the shore. We had our own terrace.

The shore was just few steps far away. It was possible to swim there and the depth of the water was not deep at all.

Also reindeers liked about the place. We saw them on early mornings lurking and hanging around when they thought we were still sleeping.

On the morning time the summit of Ukko-Luosto fell was hiding in the fog.

In Lapland there is not many events going on on the summer time. That makes it to be low budget season but also guarantees you personal peace. If you want just escape it all come to hide in Lapland on the summer season. There are many places for you to hide and experience the nature.

Kairankutsu is a professional guiding business on Luosto area. I participated on one of their route in LuostoClassic and I warmly can recommend their business. Everything is a bit expensive in Finland but by paying to Kairankutsu you will for sure feel it is worth of it. You are in good hands with them.

If you rent a car watch out reindeers. They belong to Lapland... or should I say Lapland belongs to them. They just hang around and may stuck up the traffic. Be patient with them, they are not the most intelligent creatures.
