This holiday destination is located on the bank of River Tornio. The rugged hilly landscapes on both the Finnish and the Swedish side create a peaceful, varied and different Lappish enchantment. Come to the river valley and enjoy its lush nature and four very different seasons with all the opportunities this provides. Alavainio is in a rural setting and its grounds contain a heritage homestead, barn, smoke sauna, guest house and a shoreside cottage.

Living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, fireplace room, sauna/wash room + 2 WCs, underfloor heating, parquet floors, electric sauna, domestic appliances, tableware, tap water. We also have care aids for small children. Distance to beach 100 metres.

Sitting room/open kitchen, electric heating, WC, wood-fired sauna, domestic appliances, tableware and tap water. Rental price includes bedlinen, towels and departure cleaning. Distance to beach 50 metres.

This is a good destination for independent holidaymakers. The services of Ylitornio (shops, post office, bank, restaurants) are nearby. Summertime River Tornio is great for fishing, boating, swimming or a picnic on its many small sand-dune islands. In autumn, visitors can observe the birds migrate to faraway lands and admire the resplendent autumn nature. In winter, the river’s ice cover makes skiing and snowmobiling a possibility. Fitness and nature trails and the Ainiovaara ski centre are 4 km away.

In May-June you can admire the force of nature as the river breaks free from its ice cover and begins to flow freely in honour of spring.

The distance to the gym/swimming hall is 2 km. Sweden is 8 km away by road, and 200 metres as the bird flies. To Rovaniemi 115 km (airport 125 km), Tornio 60 km (airport 85 km) and Svanstein 50 km. Aavasaksa 12 km.

Minimum rental period: one weekend
