The great Tornio River / Torne River in Lapland
The Tornio River (also called the Torne River) is the largest free-flowing river in all of Europe. The river basin is very large at 37 300 km2. It is also a border river between Finland and Sweden. The total length of the river is over 500 kilometers, and it passes very different landscapes along its route from Swedish mountains to forest lands of the middle of the Tornio River valley until the city of Tornio. The river accumulates most of its water from the huge mountain valleys of northern Sweden. The real starting point for the river is water flowing from the huge arctic lake Torneträsk, located in northern Swedish Lapland.
Most of the Tornio River flows above the Arctic Circle, so around midsummer, the sun never sets on the river. Two big rivers, and many smaller streams and brooks feed the Tornio River. Its two biggest tributaries are the Lainio river and the Muonio river, which is also the border river between Finland and Sweden. There are many famous rapids in the Tornio River, such as Kukkolankoski, Matkakoski, Kattilakoski and Kengisforsen. In many places along the river, the current is very strong, with an impressive average of 370 m³/s.
