Ylitornio and its wondrous surroundings 

Sensational Ylitornio 

  

       



Ylitornio sits in the rural Tornio River Valley, on land that has traditionally been cultivated. The landscape is dominated by the Tornio River and the surrounding rugged tree-covered hills. Ylitornio is located in the Southwest corner of the Province of Lapland and it is home to some 4,400 people. The land area is 2,212 km², making the population density about 2 people per km². The neighbouring municipalities are Pello, Rovaniemi, Tervola and Tornio on the Finnish side and Ă–vertorneĂĽ in Sweden. Together, Finland‘s Ylitornio and the Swedish Ă–vertorneĂĽ form a historically, linguistically and culturally unique totality. Three languages, Finnish, Swedish and Meänkieli, are spoken in the region. Ylitornio is served by good traffic connections. Highway 21 bypasses the centre on the west side and the town‘s main street, Alkkulanraitti, is not far removed from the highway. A lot of shops and services can be found on Alkkulanraitti.

Welcome to Aavasaksa! Lapland‘s oldest travel destination, the hill of Aavasaksa, is about 10 km north from the centre of Ylitornio. The top of the hill is 242 metres above sea level. It is a wellknown scenic spot and vantage point. Visitors can admire one of Finland‘s official national landscapes from the hilltop. A four-kilometre nature trail goes around the hill in this exceptionally beautiful setting. Today‘s Aavasaksa offers accommodation, a small ski centre, a cafeteria-restaurant, an observation tower and the Keisarinmaja (Imperial Lodge) museum, which is housed in a villa built in 1882. The hill is known as the southernmost point in Finland from where the midnight sun can be seen during the summer solstice.

The French Academy of Sciences performed measurements in Aavasaksa in the 18th century Is the Earth shaped like a lemon or like a tangerine? This problem was the subject of heated debate in the scientific circles of early 18th-century Europe. The answer was important for, among other things, navigation and thus King Louis XV of naval

might France assembled an expedition party consisting of members of the Royal Academy of Sciences, the leading scientists of their day, and sent them to the far north to resolve the issue. The expedition was led by Pierre Louis Moreau de Maupertuis. Uppsala University Professor of Astronomy Anders Celsius complemented the expedition with master linguist and future astronomer Anders Hellant serving as its local guide. It is said that Anders Celsius performed the first temperature measurements for his Celsius scale while participating in this effort.

THE FRENCH Academy of Sciences performed geophysical measurements in Aavasaksa under the leadership of Pierre Maupertuis in 1736.

KEISARINMAJA is the oldest tourism building in Lapland. It was built to serve travellers visiting the hill and named to honour the upcoming visit of the Russian Emperor and Grand Duke of Finland. The Emperor‘s visit was cancelled because of the unstable political situation, however.

River Tornio The River Tornio, called väylä (channel or passage) in Meänkieli, is more than 500 kilometres long. The source of the river is Lake Tornio in Sweden and it flows into the Bay of Bothnia at the border of Tornio and Haparanda, its course forming a natural border between Sweden and Finland along the way. The Tornio is a renowned salmon river. It is the longest free-flowing river in Europe and a significant aspect of the

entire culture of the Tornio River Valley. It crosses the Arctic Circle at the village of Turtola. The sun does not rise above the horizon at all in mid-winter north of the Arctic Circle. This polar night is called kaamos in Finnish. By contrast, the sun does not set for days on end in summertime. The Arctic Circle runs through the village of Meltosjärvi in Ylitornio.

Övertorneå Övertorneå is a municipality in Northern Sweden. The town of Matarenki, which is located on the opposite bank from Aavasaksa, serves as its municipal centre. The population of Övertorneå is about 4,500. It is connected to Finland

by a bridge and the majority of residents speak either Meänkieli or Finnish. The names of the area‘s villages and natural features are also in Finnish or Swedish translations of the original Finnish names.

Ski centre The terrain around Ainiovaara ski centre provides a fantastic setting for cross-country skiing. The ski trail network is some 20 km long, about half of which is lighted. The trails are open to everyone and the Municipality of Ylitornio takes care of their maintenance. A stretch of trails is covered with snow cannon in the immediate vicinity of Ainiovaara. The snowmaking system makes it possible to provide access to 1.4 km of trails at the very start of the season. These early-snow trails ensure that competitive and fitness skiers can enjoy excellent training conditions from the first weeks of winter. Local weather conditions provide skiable snow long into the spring.

Fitness House Ylitornio‘s Fitness House is at the south end of Alkkulanraitti. This sports hall covers more than 800 square metres and also includes a swimming pool and a gym. It can seat an audience of 500 and has six dressing rooms with showers. The 25-metre pool has four lanes. The swim facility has five massaging showers, a children‘s pool and a whirlpool tub. There are two saunas. The gym has a floor area of 120 m2 and it offers lots of bars and weight plates. The European Powerlifting Federation EPF awarded the 2017 bench press European Championships to Ylitornio. The local sports club, Aavasaksan Kisa ry, is an experienced and active organiser of prestigious events. It was given responsibility for organising the upcoming European Championships in bench press that will take place in Ylitornio in August 2017. This is not the first time that Ylitornio plays host to a major powerlifting event. Among other things, Aavasaksan Kisa organised the women‘s powerlifting European and World Championships in 2005 and 2009 as well as the open classic powerlifting Finnish Championships in early 2015.

The club is very active and fields several junior teams, has a women‘s section and, of course, supports the men‘s club side, which competes in the second division.

Ylitornio Church Ylitornio Church was built in 1940. The outbreak of the Winter War slowed construction. The majority of the building work had to be completed by women because the men were called to the front. This is why the church is often referred to as the Women‘s Church. The church was designed by the architect G.A. Wahlroos with Mr Kustaa Räihä supervising the building effort. The pews seat 550 worshippers. The church was consecrated on 14 July 1940. During the consecration, Vicar L.P. Tapaninen declared his hope that “The gospel of Jesus Christ shall echo under the vaults of the church with purity and strength, so that the congregation‘s hearts may open with confidence to receive the experience of faith.” The steeple dates back to the earlier church building and was built in 1819, making it probably the oldest building still in use in Ylitornio. The altarpiece was painted by J. Hedman in 1818. A monument to fallen war heroes stands in the churchyard. It was created by the sculptor Kalervo Kallio and is called The praying mother. The military section of the cemetery is the final resting place for 222 fallen soldiers from Ylitornio.

Traditional homesteads Niuro and Kohkola The Niuro homestead has been restored to its early 20thcentury look. The furniture represents designs from the 1940s–50s. The house suffered damage from German bombardment during the war. It sits on a beautiful site on the bank of Tornio River. The Kohkola homestead is also located on the same grounds. The house represents the Southern Lapland style that is popular in the river valley. It is located in Kaulinranta and was spared destruction during the German retreat of the Lapland War. A man named Kohkoinen lived in Kaulinranta in the 16th century, but the logs of the existing building date back to the 18th century. The restoration work honoured the traditional style of building such homesteads and the house is now the venue for many kinds of activities such as events and art exhibitions. The Ylitornio Museum and Homestead Association leases the house for people hosting many types of events. In summer, a cafeteria is active on the premises.

Annikki Kariniemi

Väinö Kataja

A statue sculpted by Artist Professor Ensio Seppänen was erected in Aavasaksa in 1990. It honours the women of Lapland and the writer Annikki Kariniemi in particular. She was the first published female author from Lapland and one of the few women to write wilderness stories.

The statue of Väinö Kataja, also sculpted by Ensio Seppänen, is located in the town centre. It was revealed on 13 August 1972 in honour of the lifework of Väinö Kataja, an author from Ylitornio.

Kariniemi lived in 1913–1984. She published novels and youth novels in addition to numerous articles and short stories. She contributed to many newspapers and magazines and was a charter member of the Northern Writers‘ Society. Her first book, the novel PoroKristiina (Reindeer Kristiina) was published in 1952. From 1944 to 1962, Kariniemi was married to Colonel Oiva Willamo, commander of the Lapland Border Guard.

He lived in 1867–1914 and was known for his depictions of everyday life in Ylitornio and the broader region of Southern Lapland. His published works include novels, short stories, stories and plays. His best-known work is Koskenlaskijan morsian (The Logroller‘s Bride), which has also been made into a movie. A cabin now stands at the site of Väinö Kataja‘s home. His work is showcased there during the summer months.

ACCOMMODATION Ainola hunting estate

Versatile hunting estate offers unforgettable moments The Ainola hunting estate meets the requirements of even the most demanding hunter. Guests will enjoy not only the expansive and game-rich hunting grounds, but also the manor house itself. Our guests stay at an 18-bed building that also boasts a turret bar. The hunting grounds of your dreams The dream hunt of any huntsman can become reality at Ainola. An elk hunt done on our well-groomed game fields or unhurriedly with the elegant aid of an elk dog are an Ainola trade mark. Capercaillie, black grouse, willow grouse and hazel hen are hunted with the help of pointing bird dogs. The pheasants that roam the grounds are an interesting target for more experienced hunters as well. Hares and waterfowl are another, fairly abundant game alternative at Ainola. Some of the estate‘s hunting grounds are located on the Swedish side of the border.

The many buildings on the estate grounds include curiosities that count as attractions in and of themselves. All of them provide a valuable contribution to the continuing legacy of the Ainola estate. We welcome you to an unforgettable hunt at Ainola!

Fish In addition to hunting, you can also go fish. The adjacent lake with its well-tended fish stocks is an excellent place to enjoy fishing. Break a sweat in our smoke sauna or the tradition-rich shore sauna, where former President Urho Kekkonen left his signature.

The eatery Nälkäinen Hauki is on the same grounds and the village shop and a service station are just a short walk away. We have 14 rooms, some of which are equipped with kitchenettes and bathrooms. The needs of guests with impaired mobility have also been taken into consideration. The main building contains saunas and showers, meeting and conference rooms for 30 people, a well-equipped kitchen, drying closet and a washing machine. A peaceful recreational space is located in the upstairs lobby. The eatery Nälkäinen Hauki shares the same grounds with us and the village shop Piimätien Puoti with its fuel pump is just a short walk away. The wilderness centre‘s environs are excellent for fishing in both winter and summer, whether you are trolling for a giant pike, trying to fly fish a grayling or going for one of the river‘s famed salmon. A good spot for launching boats is on our grounds and we also rent boats. We are located on the path of a bird migration flyway, which provides for great bird-watching and photographing opportunities. We can also arrange guided excursions to photograph, for example, elk on request. Rovaniemi railway

station and airport are less than 80 km away and can be reached by car in less than one hour. If you want to slow your pace and enjoy a peaceful natural environment and silence, we recommend you try our affordable wintertime week rentals – with luck, you‘ll get to admire an Aurora Borealis light show. In summer, we offer a 20-person smoke sauna for rent. Our kota barbecue shelter has a capacity of 20 and is available to our guests free of charge. Our bathing beach is the most popular in the area and the sandy beach is a great place to take in the glare of the summer sun. Go for an outing on the ski trails around Lake Lohi in winter or rent a pair of snowshoes from us and go on a hike. Another winter option is to visit a reindeer farm and check out how racing reindeer are trained, for example. Come to Lohijärven Eräkeskus for a wilderness experience – we also welcome dogs with their masters and mistresses!
