What to expect?

Join us on one of our Luleå day tours to the Storforsen nature reserve and let yourself be carried away by the thundering river. The Pite River is one of the four unharnessed National Rivers of Sweden and the rapids are one of the biggest unrestricted water rapids in Europe. The river is stretching 400 kilometres from its glacial source to the sea.

From November and December the pools of the river freeze over. When air temperatures drop really low, even the rapids freeze. An ice dam forms and water is forced into out into the surrounding forest, which freezes over around the trees and bushes of the river banks into a unique winter scenery. During winter the river banks are often lined with tracks from grouse, hares, squirrels, elk and reindeer. Also there is a chance to see otter and mink looking for spots of open water, rapids an streams where they can fish.

During the tour, your guide will inform you about the surroundings, history and wildlife. You are offered hot beverages and a lunch which is cooked over an open fire by your guide.
