COWS AND CLOVER FIELDS AT KURVILANSAARI
In the peace of Kurvila, summer days are spent rattling the cows, herding the barn from the pasture and caring for the adorable calves. There is still plenty of time to explore the village trails and enjoy Lapland's bright summer in the traditional courtyard. A unique opportunity to become a cowherd in Lapland!
