Bright spring hues, the magic of the midnight sun and an autumnal blaze of colour. The freely flowing Iijoki River, a touch of the natural wilds, and true peace and quiet. These things signify a source of strength for the Finnish people. Here in North Finland, in Taivalkoski, one has to redefine the concept of time, since this is one place where time slows. Taivalkoski is a true oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A genuine pleasure-lover’s paradise.
