We were staying at the Swedish campsite adjacent to the Torne river and Kukkolaforsen cascades. We took a stroll along the bank admiring the cascades and watching fishermen doing their job. Nature added its ambience with nice sunset in mid-June.

Beautiful and stunning place along Torneälv. Well worth a visit. The Swedish side has a very nice visitor center with a restaurant and a museum. On the Finnish side they offer the opportunity to go white water rafting. Looked like a lot of fun.

Kukkolaforsen (swe) or Kukkolankoski (fin) is propably the best sightseeing nearby if you are visiting Tornio or Haparanda. I have been there several times during last 30 years and it is always nice attraction to go.
