Have you ever jumped across the Arctic Circle? You have to give that a try when you’re here, what a feeling! Övertorneå lives up during the summer and attracts visitors with its traditional culture and charm. Just about 10 kilometers south of Övertorneå you will find Luppioberget which makes the perfect daytrip for the whole family with its magnificent surroundings and views. It is like God himself would have built a stone fort of Luppioberget. And if you happen to be here on Midsummer Eve, the Luppio giant who is said to live inside the mountain, may show himself to greet the first rays of sunshine. There are many myths and legends linked to this place.

Nowadays there is a restaurant up on the mountain, and do we need to mention the view is spectacular? Bring the whole family to Luppioberget for an adventurous outing – and do not forget your camera. The children’s favorite is of course the lovely Ekobadet with heated outdoor pool, water slides and children’s pool – the bath is located in the center of Övertorneå. We also recommend you to visit Övertorneå church, where you can see the oldest organ in Sweden. Take the opportunity to learn more about the culture here in Torne River Valley, and enjoy the summer in Övertorneå!
