Home of bucket-heads

Tervola – The home of something the locals call “bucket-headness”, i.e. of caring, positiveness, creative problem solving, doing things your own way and having a little twinkle in your eye - is situated in Southern Lapland, by the river Kemi. Tervola is only less than an hours drive - or a power nap – away from closest bigger cities of Kemi and Rovaniemi, the village offers the basics of calm and simple life.

Tervola village cherishes the communal way of life, As the municipality has applied this local attitude to everything they do, the municipality has earned the highest marks for its resident’s happiness during a bi-annual national municipality survey in 2020. 

Tervola offers a good village-school network as well as affordable & accessible hobbies for children. For adults, this growing village offers work opportunities and natural beauty with plenty of opportunities to pick berries and hunt for mushrooms.

The bucket-headness is a state of mind, which you can adopt anytime, but of course the best place to put it in practise is where it was born.
