Then there are the big trout.
Waterfalls and big pools give character to the rivers and provide landscape for strategic casting. Welcome to the land where a two kilogram fish is just average and three and four kilo trout are to be expected. With guided fishing of this calibre accessible 24 hours a day (the land of the midnight sun is a moniker grounded in fact), it’s easy to see why bankside campfire meals are the norm.
Hidden from the world by its relative inaccessibility is some of the best Arctic char fishing on the planet. Fished for from the bank, in waders, by boat and float tube, char are a worthy opponent in these crystal clear waters. Full of guile, local knowledge and plenty of fight, these are the fish of fireside tall tales.
To rusticate with a rod in one hand, just book a flight, pack clean clothes, a toothbrush and a catching attitude. From the minute your feet touch down in Skellefteå we’ll take care of the rest.
