12 kilometers west of Överkalix you will find a small and forest clad paradise called Lavas. Next to the Lavas mountain, in true wilderness, you can spend your time just caring for yourself or finding adventure around the corner. Relax on 500 hectares of forest land where you have access to solitude, culturally interesting rural history and the possibility of experiencing an outdoor adventure.
