Die EuroVelo 7 durchquert nur einen sehr kleinen Teil Finnlands zwischen Norwegen und Schweden, einen Teil von Finnisch-Lappland, der größten und nördlichsten Region Finnlands, aus der auch der "mythische" Weihnachtsmann stammen soll. Sie folgt der Nationalstraße 93 zwischen dem Park Tarvantovaara ödemarksområde und dem Wildnisgebiet Pöyrisjärvi und dann der Europastraße E8 entlang der schwedischen Grenze, wobei sie Karesuvanto und Karesuando besucht. Eine kleine Gemeinde, in der Mitte durch einen Fluss und die finnisch-schwedische Grenze geteilt. Das Gebiet, das durch eine 1980 gebaute Straßenbrücke verbunden ist, ist traditionell finnisch- und samischsprachig, obwohl die kulturellen und sprachlichen Unterschiede nach dem Finnischen Krieg von 1809 zunahmen.
