        • OUR TIPS

          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.

Orhinselkä Sands and Nature Trail​

In the middle of Miekojärvi Lake, the Orhinselkä peninsula sands are a unique natural attraction. Wilderness magazine Erä chose the Orhinselkä peninsula the most beautiful natural beach in 2007.

(Tornio, FIN)

Kukkolankoski Rapids are the longest free-flowing rapids in Finland. The old tradition of dip net fishing is alive and well in Kukkolankoski. The rapids are located in the village of Kukkola 15 km to the north from Tornio.

Jaipaljukka Nature Trail​
(Pello, FIN)

The large rock formation of Jaipaljukka was formed at the end of the ice age as the ice was melting and the tectonic plates were moving. A guided nature trail of about 4 kilometres is perfect for a short day hike. The trail begins in Pello some 12 km towards Rovaniemi.
