Finland meandering from the north

Hi, Im in the early stages of planning a Scandinavian and Baltic trip and have a first draft of my route through Norway. Now I'm turning to Finland and am after any advice on places to visit. I will be travelling June/July time

I am contemplating crossing the border at Karigasniemi initially heading for Rovaniemi and taking in the Sami museum at Siida on route. Other than that I have no plans as I meander south. Time is not an issue.

Things I like to include in my meanderings no particular order are

natural beauty (scenery, forgotten the other sort :-)), experiencing the culture of wherever I am, history, food/beer/coffee (aren't they the same thing), good motorcycling roads.

My plan is to predominantly camp with a once a week stay at somewhere cheap with a shower.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Consider the change in Your route and crossing the border in Utsjoki instead of Karigasniemi. The E6 road that going north-east from Karasjok by Tana Elv river is very nice and picturesque.

Here's the photo taken from norwegian side of Tana Elv:
