          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.

Kukkolankoski cultural heritage

Kukkolankoski is a village by the Torne river with vivid traditional fishing culture. In the summer season fishermen catch whitefish in the rapids with a dipnet following the centuries old tradition. The catch is shared every summer evening at 6 pm in an intriguing ceremony at the rapids field.

Come witness the quirky tradition and try the most famous dish: whitefish on a skewer cooked on open fire!

During the summer season some events are organized at the rapids field and a cafe welcomes visitors.
