The lake and river system of Pello provides a glorious setting for paddling, which can also be combined with fishing should you so desire. The small tributaries of the River Tornio offer a unique paddling environment with an entirely different flow and size from the main channel. The River Tornio and its many rapids is a great venue for white-water paddling – the foaming waters of these rapids will take the measure of any paddler.

Nightless night paddling route in the Tornio River Valley

Paddling is also a fun way to get to see the whole river valley and the border forms a concrete presence throughout the trek through six municipalities (Pajala, Pello, Övertorneå, Ylitornio, Tornio and Haaparanta). Pack your canoe and head for the extensive water routes of the Tornio River Valley. More information HERE about the Nightless Night paddling route.
