Abstract [en]

When studying the finnish culture in the great forests of Scandinavia, it is their use of the fire which is most different from the surrounding swedish and norvegian culture. The finns burnt down the forest and sowed in the ashes. When swedes and norwegians dried their hey in the sun, the finns dried their rye in small houses called ”rior”, which were warmed upp by log fire, and their cabins were kept warm with help from the smoke from the chimneyless smokeovens. The finns came to the middle parts of Sweden and Norway in the seventeenth century from Savolax and Karelen in Finland. They brought en eastfinnish culture with them, wich strongly differed from the traditionally swedish and norwegian. The language, type of buildings, warming of houses, food and magic beliefs, everything was very different, but they preserved their language and culture in nearly 300 years! Today, there are small tryings to make tourist attractions of this culture. The 240 km long Finnforesttrail and the Center for finnish culture in Torsby are examples of that. This is what I wanted to study in my investigation, how you might develop the tourism in the territory called the Finnforest, What kinds of attitudes exist among different societies in the territory towards increasing tourism, what they like to show and how to do it. The purpose therefore was to study how the finnish culture, wich is unique and precious, is maintained and shown today, and to give examples of how you can develop the Finnforest for tourism. The questions I have tried to answer are therefor: - How can the Finnforest be developed for tourism? - What have already been done in that purpose and what can still be done? - Should there be only autenticity or should you build a kind of amusement park on the theme? To get the answers I sent out a questionnaire to most of the societies and firms that have anything to do with the tourism in the actual territory and my main results was that the area already have many, but small attracktions for tourists and that they should remain rather small. Just a very tender and smallscaled development was desirable, mostly for giving the inhabitants jobs.
