L'EuroVelo 7 ne traverse qu'une toute petite partie de la Finlande, entre la Norvège et la Suède, une partie de la Laponie finlandaise, la région la plus grande et la plus septentrionale de Finlande, d'où viendrait le "mythique" Père Noël. Elle suit la route nationale 93 entre le parc Tarvantovaara ödemarksområde et la zone de nature sauvage de Pöyrisjärvi, puis la route européenne E8 le long de la frontière suédoise, en visitant Karesuvanto et Karesuando. Une petite communauté, divisée en deux par une rivière et la frontière finlandaise/suédoise. Reliée par un pont routier construit en 1980, la région est traditionnellement de langue finlandaise et sami, bien que les divisions culturelles et linguistiques se soient accrues après la guerre finlandaise de 1809.
