Come and visit us in Fell Lapland, Finland, Muonio. The area is surrounded by picturesque soft shaped fells, hundreds of fresh lakes, rivers and streams. Muonio river, which is the border line between Finland and Sweden, is the longest free-floating river in Europe and good for fishing salmon or whitewater rafting. According to researchers, we also have the happiest people in Finland who breathe the cleanest air in the world! PuroPuro is based in a beautiful village, Torassieppi, 16km from Muonio and about 50km from Levi and Ylläs.
Pallas Yllästunturi National Park, next to our home, is the most popular and one of the biggest National Parks in Finland. It offers great terrain to hike, bike and paddle, as well as wilderness huts to have breaks.
