Route 21 runs from Tornio to Kilpisjärvi along the Tornio River. On the way there are many pleasant stops along the way. The only point of interest in Aavasaksa is its hill, the "Hill of the Sun", which attracts many visitors every year who come here to enjoy the midnight sun at the Arctic Circle. In summer, there are many hiking trails along the river and through the forest. In winter, there are ski slopes and hikes with dog sleds, reindeer... At the top of the hill, there is an observation tower, a house built for a tsar and a pavilion that serves as a café in summer. The surrounding national park is protected.
