Welcome to Kukkolaforsen and welcome to Tornio valley
Kukkolaforsen Tourism & Conference Ltd. is a conference, experience and knowledge center in the Torne Valley. The spirit of the region is presented by the rustic accommodation, the various sauna experiences, and the rewarding fishing opportunities. Here you can get peace and creative inspiration.
Kukkolaforsen’s culinary tradition has a strong local touch melded with influences from around the world. The produce comes from the wild forest’s hidden places, the fish abundant rapids, and the fertile farmer’s allotments.
At Kukkolaforsen you can enjoy several different types of saunas in its natural environment.
In the relax area there are a cozy fireplace and comfortable armchairs for you to sit and relax in between and after you have experienced the sauna. The VIP sauna is a dry pine sauna with an 18 kWh electric heated oven. The room is an octagonal sauna with Russian dry pine walls. In the terrace, there are two wooden heated stainless steel hot-tubs. From the footpath leading down to the river, you can take a dip in the fresh water of the Kukkola rapids.
In this hand-carved timber sauna, there is enough room for about 60 people to experience the soft sauna steam at the same time. It is a wood-fired oven and it is the largest oven in Sweden and has over 2300 kg of stone to aggregate the heat of the fire. The experience of the steam is special as the volume in the sauna room causes the air to be filled with oxygen mixed with sauna steam. Outside, on the terrace, is a cozy wood heated Hot Tub and everything is overlooking the Kukkola rapids.
A wooden-fired bathtub where you can experience the total relaxation under the open sky and with the sound of rapids in the background. Our baths can accommodate 10-12 people and are heated to about 40° C. We use fresh clean water for every bath. We have several baths and they are made of both wood and stainless steel.
