The favorite themes of the Finns: Nature, History & stories

... and we have plenty of it. The free-flowing river Iijoki transmits its colors of the barren landscape of Taivalkoski. He leaves us with a year of peace in nature and adventure in the wilderness. Taivalkoski offers cultural events, beautiful countryside and wilderness fun for all. The recurrent cultural happenings and sport events such as the Kalle Päätalo week, the Iijoki-Soutu (multi-day rowing event), the border-to-border crosscountry event, the autumn market and the Palava Koski (burning river-event) are worth a visit.
