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. 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.
