What are we going to do

During the experience you get to catch, prepare and grill your very own whitefish on a skewer and enjoy it in the cultural environment of Kukkolankoski rapids. Local fishermen will guide you in trying dipnetting and tell stories about their age-old heritage.

You will get to know the traditional fishing culture of the Torne Valley and familiarize yourself with cooking super fresh organic food. You will have a unique local taste experience in the gorgeous natural surrounding of Kukkolankoski rapids.

The traditional fishing culture of the Torne valley has a status in the national listings of intangible heritage both in Finland (2017) and in Sweden (2018).
