The Phenomena of Arctic Nature project addresses both nature and nature-based tourism. Its main objective is to raise awareness of arctic nature and its unique phenomena in the nature tourism sector. New infrastructure, nature exhibitions and a range of different workshops have boosted cooperation among tourism entrepreneurs and stakeholders in the Fennoscandian Green Belt in Finnish, Norwegian and Russian Lapland and spread awareness of the phenomena of arctic nature. The project is implemented during 2019–2022, and it is co-funded by the ENI Kolartic CBC 2014–2020 program.
