Kemi is a town and municipality of Finland. Get a sense of the local culture at Tietomaa and Kauppahalli. Explore Kemi's surroundings by going to Oulu (Nallikari Beach, Toripolliisi, &more) and Haukipudas Church (in Haukipudas). Next up on the itinerary: visit Sampo Icebreaker, take an in-depth tour of The Provincial Museum Of Tornio Valley, admire the landmark architecture of Kemi Church, and admire the masterpieces at Kemin Jalokivigalleria (Kemi Gemstone Gallery).

Plan my Kemi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Mumbai, India to Kemi is an approximately 21.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET), which is usually a -3.5 hour difference.
