Western Lapland’s extensive waterway film locations include exciting whitewater river rapids with easy accessibility and nearby support services.

The municipality of Muonio is home to the most impressive waterways in all of Lapland, including the Äijäkoski Rapids, located 7 kilometers from the town center. The busy waters offer an optimal location for capturing speed and action, but you don’t have to travel far for a more peaceful nature setting.

Äijäkoski is a part of the 230-kilometer Muonio River, which makes up a part of the border between Finland and Sweden. The lively rapids are surrounded by nature trails, and an observation point offers an impressive view of the surroundings. A popular spot amongst fisherfolk, nature enthusiasts and whitewater rafters, the Äijäkoski area also includes a spacious parking area and a lean-to.
