The perspectives for recreational use of attractive stone objects in the natural region of the Russian-owned part of Fennoscandia are considered. Such objects as fjords, canyons, selga, rapids, huge boulders and their clusters, petroglyphs, seitas and labyrinths are very popular among tourists. The article shows new approaches to the interpretation of the primary purpose of the Stone Age objects, based on the priorities of geographical adaptation, rational development of the landscape, space marking and time measurement. The modern problems of preservation of cultural heritage monuments are considered. Special attention is paid to anthropomorphic and zoomorphic rocks and sculptures, the genesis of which is the subject of scientific debate. The use of geographical methods expands the concept of the primary purpose of ancient objects, stone processing technologies, the simplest tools of orientation in space-time and the ancient navigation system. The results of the research allow us to clarify ideas about the evolution of the natural environment in the region, clarify the existing reconstruction of the economic structure and cultural traditions of the indigenous population, optimize the existing and develop new models of rational use of the natural and cultural heritage in the field of tourism and recreation. Prehistoric stone objects are a source of unique information and a valuable resource for the development of recreational activities. The inclusion of these objects in the system of organized tourism contributes to their preservation and economic development of the territory. The article is addressed to researchers and priaktiks involved in the development of projects for the development of the Arctic regions.
