Overview
More
Treriksroysa (or Three-Country Cairn) is the point at which the borders of Sweden, Norway and Finland meet. It is an example of a geographical feature known as a tripoint. The tripoint monument itself is a yellow dome-shaped stone made of concrete, located about 10 metres (33 ft) out in Lake Goldajarvi (also known as lake Koltajauri). It is located at 489 metres (1,604 ft) above sea level. The monument was built in 1926. The size is about 14 square metres (150 sq ft) with diameter of about 4 metres (13 ft). It is mentioned as the world's smallest island divided by a border, even if that is a matter of definition. It is reached by walking 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from Kilpisjarvi in Finland on a public road. In summertime, it can be reached by boat from Kilpisjarvi plus a 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) walk.

The place is situaded between the borders between Sweden, Norway and Finland. A great place for hiking and camping. Just remember good shoes and good clothing.The terrain might be a bit ruff, but very nice.Absolutely worth a visit. Bevare of wild animals.
