COUNTING SHEEP BY THE LOUE RIVER

Loue, Tervola

You fall asleep in the sound of the rapids in the bedroom of a 170-year-old farmhouse. In the morning, you will first see your new friends in the window, the Finnish sheep, who are already waiting for a cuddle. Next in line are the cat, rabbits and dogs. After the morning chores, Loue’s village trail invites you to hop on a bike saddle and pedal to a fireplace hut, a beach, a summer café or an art exhibition.
