During the tour you will hear about the history of Kukkola village and many stories about life in the area in the old times.

Torne River has played a big role in everyday life of the villagers; it has been a mean of transport and it has brought food to the table. In the Timber Smoke Hut you will hear about the fishing traditions, how the classic tarred riverboats and the unique fishing methods were developed to meet the local conditions. You might even see how whitefish fishing and grilling has been done for centuries. The sawmill and the mill also tell their part of the history.

Guided tour ends with a visit to the fishing museum.

This 1-hour activity is available all year.
