This Tiny Island Was a Hub for Lumberjacks

Located just outside of Rovaniemi City is Kotisaari, one of Finland’s tiniest islands. Measuring only 820 feet long and 200 feet wide, this sleepy locale used to be a center point for loggers in the area. The picturesque island is surrounded by a river that was once used as a floating channel to transport logs. It was closed down in the 1980s after the practice of moving logs on water was replaced by large trucks. While no one lives on the island today, it is visited by roughly 500 visitors per year looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway.
