We giants have our own way to welcome you as you’re approaching the Kivesvaara hill, even before arrival at the Arctic Giant. You can follow these signs of our lives along the roads to find the way to our home. The Arctic Giant land also features signs of our lives, as well as information about our history and our present day activities. We giants wash our teeth, make drawings, use hammers and nails, and hang our laundry out to dry too. You might not believe it, but we were once children as well! Birds are our friends, which is why we like to build birdhouses. We’ve already completed quite a lot of them. We decorated the forest with lights for you. We are a timid and peace-loving people, but we are so large that you might find it difficult to see us with your eyes. But if you know how to imagine, you might catch a glimpse of us after all.
