Retro Town


The truly unique town of Sodankylä is a refreshing flash from the past. With its old signs and retro-style buildings, the town center offers a great location for small town stories set in the past decades. Most of the buildings in and around the area are from the 70s and 80s, and they include premises such as cafés and pubs, little shops and apartment buildings.

And if you’re looking to combine small-town charm with versatile nature, you’re in luck. The rivers Jeesiöjoki and Kittinen flow right by the town, and the Pyhä-Luosto National Park is just around the corner.

Sodankylä is also home of the world-famous Midnight Sun Film Festival, which gets a special flair from the retro atmosphere of the town center each summer.
