Tornio (Swedish: Torneå) is a city in Finnish Lapland, by the border to Sweden.

Understand

Being estabilished in 1621 Tornio is definitely the oldest city in Lapland. Today the city has approximately 22 000 inhabitants. Tornio forms a unique economical zone together with Swedish town Haparanda; the border between the countries is hardly visible.

The city has a large steel factory and a famous brewery (Lapin Kulta), which was closed in August 2010. Outokumpu steel company is biggest employer in Tornio area.

While Tornio may be a good place to view the Northern Lights, many things are closed during the winter – without necessarily being advertised as such.
