Sauna and Tornedal cuisine by Torneälv
About the accommodationWelcome to Kukkolaforsen, the sauna and whitefish kingdom of Norrbotten! The accommodation by the rushing rapids in Tornedalen, the living sauna and food culture and the traditional fishing are at our core. Inner peace and creative inspiration.
Right by the rushing rapids is the family-owned Kukkolaforsen Turist & Konferens. Kukkolaforsen gives you a genuine cultural environment with fishing huts, brooding huts, a fishing museum and water-powered mills. Here, the unique net fishing is conducted according to ancient methods.
You live comfortably either in our newly built hotel or in one of our cottage apartments or smaller cottages, all of which have river views and views of the banks of the rapids. Our restaurants features ingredients from the large larder just around the corner. Everything is prepared to ensure that the northern, yes, Tornedal, flavors are front and center.
We offer activities such as rafting, sauna baths in Sweden’s only sauna village, whitefish landing, dog sledding and much more. The accommodation by the rushing rapids, the living sauna and food culture and the traditional fishing are at our core. Welcome to experience this place with us.
