Hovilompolo

Hovilompolo cabin situates in Kukkola, about 24 km to North from the Tornio city center, on a beautiful place on the riverbank of Tornionjoki river.

The cabin is well equipped with 2 bedrooms, shower, toilette, open kitchen and fireplace. In addition, there is a terrace, 2-floor summer house called Aitta, sauna, playhouse for children and octagonal Lappish hut.

The pride and joy of Hovilompolo is the big Smoke Sauna, where 20 persons can go at the same time. The tender darkness of this sauna provides guaranteed relaxation. Near the sauna,’s balcony you can also take a bath in Hulju, which is Hovilompolo’s own “human boiler”. The bath is for max 8 persons. There is also a cosy octagonal Kotasauna for 10 persons. Both the Smoke Sauna and Kotasauna are traditional saunas without a shower. Washing water comes from the buckets.

There is also a Lappish kota hut for 30 persons right beside the saunas. Relax by the fire before or after sauna and get to know how the locals make the traditional Tornionjoki whitefish grilled on a stick. Kota is also a great place to enjoy the local appetizers.  And if you rather sit outside by the fire, the Lappish decked fire place, laavu, is a good place for that.

Huvilompolo is a perfect place for fishermen since it is situated between two wild rapids, Kukkolankoski and Matkakoski. The catch might include salmon, whitefish, pike, and perch. The whole family can join the fishing by rowing boat or from the riverbank. The ice fishing possibilities are also great during the winter time.

On a winter time you can ski on a lighted cross-country skiing trails nearby  You can also go skiing on the river ice or put your snowshoes on and go for a forest hike.

There is also a 20 km hiking trail from Karunki to Kantojärvi with several lean-ones with fireplace and nice bird watching tower by the marshland.
