The conquest of white water Toloskoski

The Ivalo river meanders through the Lemmenjoki National Park and across the Hammastunturi wilderness area. Surrounded by rugged sceneries and majestic sights, the 180 kilometre-long river eventually flows into Lake Inari.
Trips depart from and return to Lappispola, with a launching place located downstream alongside the road to Tolonen.
The rapids of Toloskoski run strong about 4,5 km upwards from Lappispola. Riding upstream and coming down the 850-metre long rapid with a riverboat is an unforgettable adventure.
A short riverboat adventure from Lappispola to the riverhead of Toloskoski. Experience the thrills of ascending and descending the rushing rapids.
Feel the powerful currents of the river, as the boat heads upstream, and the wind in your face, as it rides downstream. Visit the area where the Lapland Gold rush started in the Ivalo river in 1869.
