Kukkolakoski / Kukkolaforsen rapid in Tornio River in Lapland

Kukkolakoski (in Finnish) or Kukkolaforsen (in Swedish) rapid is certainly one of the most beautiful places of the summer-time Lapland. It is located in Tornio River Valley some 10 km north from city of Tornio. Tornio River (Tornionjoki in Finnish and Torne älv in Swedish), which is the Europe's biggest wild river and a great salmon fishing river, is making a natural border between Finland and Sweden. This photo is taken from the Swedish side of the river.
