LULEÅ WINTER ACTIVITIES 2018/19
For upcoming winter season we have many new activities to choose from! Experience the thrill of snowmobiling or a dogsledding tour or enjoy the serenity of the wilderness on snowshoes. We also offer this year day tours to Nature Reserve Storforsen a perfect example of a majestic river landscape in Norrland. 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! In winter 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.
