The small town of Kemi is an ideal winter getaway with its cool temperatures and pristine white winters that are put to use each year to create a Snow Castle located 1km from the centre. If you’re hiring a car in Kemi, the town of Tornio is just over a 2 minute drive away. It sits on the border with Sweden that is an easy drive should you want to tick off another country on your trip. Kemi itself is home to The Crown of Finland, a model of the King of Finland’s crown, alongside other imperial jewels such as 18th Century Queen of France Marie Antoinette’s necklace.
