Nellim served as a major logging site in the 1930s and after WWII. In 1929, Atif Forestry Company commissioned a flume to cover the lower rapids of Keskimöjärvi all the way to Nellimjärvi. From there, the logs would be transported to Inarinjärvi, and finally along the Paatsjoki River to a sawmill located beside the Arctic Ocean in Elven, Norway. The renovated flume is the perfect day trip site for the whole family. The venue is accessible by car, or by the signposted path leading from Paksuvuono. There is also a partially-covered area for picnics beside a fire.
