Enjoy the nature and sports in Sea Lapland.
Golf and disc golf
The 18-hole Tornio Green Zone Golf Course sits right on the border between Finland and Sweden. The one-hour time-difference between the countries enables the golfer for the longest Hole in One on fairway 6. The hit lasts about an hour and 5 seconds due to the border between the two countries going through the 6th fairway. A unique, and challenging way to play golf, wouldn’t you say?
The 9-hole Kemi Golf Club is situated right in the core area of the city, and Mini Golf can be found at the Inner Harbour.
To play disc golf, you find the Courses in Tornio, at the Kallinkangas in Keminmaa and in the commune of Simo. The Tornio Disc Golf Course is suitable for beginners and those willing for more challenging games should head to the Disc Golf Courses in Kallinkangas or in Simo.
National Parks and Nature trails
The unspoiled nature in Sea Lapland offers plenty of opportunities for hiking: nature trails are close by and hiking tracks with natural duckboards are well-maintained for pleasant trekking. Go berry-picking or find delicious mushrooms: an extensive part of the Finnish forests is registered as protected areas for picking organic berries, mushrooms, and herbs.
Kalli Outdoor Activity Center
Kalli is located in Keminmaa, in the middle of Sea Lapland. In winter, you can go downhill skiing, snowboarding, skiing and toboggoning. There is also a cafe and campfire to warm up and enjoy snacks. The center has a slope for beginners as well as more experienced skiers. On the park side, you will find various venues, such as rails, boxes and a half pipe.
There are three fishy rivers in Sea Lapland where you can fish. The Simojoki River has its own salmon stock and the river is great for fly fishing and trolling. The most popular fishing spots in Europe’s longest free-flowing river Tornionjoki, are Matkakoski and Kukkolankoski in the area of Sea Lapland. The waters of the harnessed Kemijoki River offers exceptionally diverse fishing opportunities: from large storage pools and natural rivers to oak streams.
