We live in the middle of the country, about 300 km north of our capital, Stockholm. On our west lies Norway...on our east thereīs sea, then comes Finland, we have a "real" border against Finland too and itīs in the very north of our country,from Hapa- randa and north of that.

Golfing in two countries, at the same time!?!

In Haparanda and its Finnish sister-city Tornio, you can play golf right cross the border! The golfcourse is situated right on the border and youīll find yourself tee up, hit the ball....and it will land in a different country! And then thereīs the time-difference of one hour between Sweden and Finland...Try it some time! Itīs fun! Iīve tried it out for your sake...
And donīt worry that youīll end up with a passport full of stamps. There is no custom-line on the golfcourse...
