Finland - Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park

This card, received in the World Languages RR (written in Polish) shows the beautiful nature of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park in Lapland. It's quite far above the Atctic Circle and close to the Swedish border. I love places, where the nature isn't spoiled yet... And, as I've already written for thousands of time, I'd really love to visit Lapland :)

Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park (Finnish: Pallas-Yllästunturin kansallispuisto) is the third-largest national park in Finland, located in the Lapland Province. It was formally established in 2005, when Pallas-Ounastunturi National Park was joined with Ylläs-Aakenus protected area. It is the third largest national park in Finland, covering 1,020 square kilometres (394 sq mi). The high fells of the park are the southernmost place to see some arctic species in Finland. Most of the park consists of primeval forests and various types of muskeg.
