Happy Villages

Welcome to the Happy Villages!

Happy beaches have been attracting residents for a long time. The waters were settled here thousands of years ago. Along the lakeside trail, there are still lively villages where you can experience local culture at its most authentic. Life has a natural rhythm and each season has its own role to play.

The people who live in the lap of the lake and the forest tell the best stories, know the most rewarding treks and know how to capture the changing Arctic light on canvas. With them, you’ll find the best places to go off the trail and stop to savour the moment.

The proximity of water and forests and the good living conditions they provide: fishing, hunting, berry picking and natural bounty have attracted people to Happy Village from the Stone Age to the present day. Its long and rich history is reflected in its housing, culture and a wide variety of village events.
