Along the border river between Sweden and Finland


LappeanLohi is located on the top of the imposing cliffs, along the wild and free-flowing Tornion River, halfway between the famous Lappea Salmon Slough.

The accommodation at LappeanLohi has been renovated into personalised rooms in the former Lappea village school. The history of the village school dates back to 1921, when the Compulsory Education Act came into force in Finland.

"Is there anything else to do here then but fish? Yes, you can. There are plenty of woods, trails and forest roads to explore. The Laestadius Trail, an ancient route from Pajala in Sweden to Lake Sieppijärvi in Finland, starts right from this village. Along the path you will find, among other things, a lava church and a lookout tower.

In autumn you can go berry picking and in winter you can go snowshoeing and skiing. A snowmobile trail comes to the village and along it you can go for a ride to Rovaniemi, for example.

Here, life goes at its own leisurely pace, nature is close by and people have time for each other. I highly recommend that next time you're driving on Highway 21, turn left after Pello, coming from the south, onto the Väylänvarren salmon road and take a peek at what Lappea village looks like."
