          Our Lapland is also Your Lapland

          “When you understand what Our Lapland is like, you won’t want to leave.”

          Our calendar is the Torne River
          When does the ice break? Is it already flooding? Is the salmon coming? Is the river already frozen?

          Our clock is the sun
          During the polar night the sun is barely rises, so why not stay in and take it easy. In summer there is light, night and day. So much time and so many nice things to do! Still, let’s take it easy. Have a seat, we’ll have a coffee and a chat.

          Take a moment to feel the rhythm of light and nature.

          Come along!

          The river runs hundreds of kilometres from the Torne Lake in northern Sweden to the far end of the Bay of Bothnia. The area of Original Lapland is vast and the distances may be long, however, the road network and connections cover the area well and getting from place to place is no problem.
