| Sweden's most northerly destination,
"The Kingdom of the Eight Seasons", right up in the
Land of the Midnight Sun! The area has been lyrically acclaimed
by sports writers ever since angling became an important sport
Addicted anglers can find their dream waters here.
In Lainio we know where to find the best fishing poles, we
offer our guests good services, and one of the best fishing
camps close to the last wilderness river in the world. We
know the needs of our angling guests, so we can organise tailor-made
packages, regardless of what species you hope to catch.
The area has six fast-flowing rivers, 400-600 km long, and
about 2,500 forest and mountain lakes, all within easy reach
of each other. The Lainio wilderness river is the best known,
mainly because of its fantastic salmon fishing, but also for
its trout and grayling. Downstream from the village of Lainio
the river changes its character and forms a canyon with vertical
cliffs on each side. Anglers can land from a boat in certain
places and experience some exciting fishing for trout or grayling.
This area also has the best salmon pools for both spinning
and fly-fishing. The quality of the fishing can vary so it
is advisable to check locally in advance.
Naturally the exciting fishing in the forest and mountain
lakes also attracts the keen angler.
