Culture and recreation

Do you yearn for things to do and places to visit? Do you crave experiences and adventures? Liminka has an excellent framework for recreational activities and cultural experiences. Here you can also exercise, go hiking or simply enjoy the tranquillity of nature. This old rural municipality exudes history and stories from as far back as the 15th century. Liminka old town, with its beautiful houses and museums, as well as the Abraham Cultural Park, with its theater performances, concerts and stand-up comedy nights offer things to see for all ages.

Avid readers can direct their steps toward the comfortable and modern library where, in addition to books, there are versatile services made available to you. In the library you can find study and work spaces, a cosy reading room and competent staff. Whether your question concerns research or the electronic archives, we will help you. From the Liminka library you can even borrow snowshoes or a painting for your wall!

Or how about a nature excursion to the Alakestilä Arboretum, birdwatching at the Liminka Bay, a game of tennis at the track and field stadium or a tournament at the brand-new sports hall? The Rantakylä activity park with its swimming area and cross-country skiing facilities is also worth a visit. There are diverse sport and hobby possibilities available to athletes of all levels, but also to those who aim for the top. Accessibility has also been given priority in Liminka.
