Of course, a true Lapland traveller has a hunting knife made in Lapland and a travellers loyal friend, kuksa, a drinking cup made from carved wood, that lasts from father to son. In Sodankylä, knives and kuksas are handmade by e.g. Riipi Puukko and Sakun kuksa. Hint! You can also design the knife or kuksa of your dreams, but please contact manufacturers well in advance, as subscription products have a longer preparation time!
Handicrafts, souvenirs and other gift items can be found in the city centre, for example, at the Lahjatalo and Beeti. Along the way, you should stop for shopping souvenirs in places such as Antinmerja, Aska and Lapin Anna Design, Matarasselkä. More local shops can be found at the end of the page!
