Northern Light & Midnight Sun
Light plays a central roll in this part of Sweden. The winter nights are lit up thanks to the northern lights that flow over the sky in different colours. If you are really quiet you can hear how they crackle. Join one of the northern lights tours that are arranged.
In Swedish lapland, the nights during the summer months never really get dark when the midnight sun squanders its light.
Sleigh ride with reindeer
In Swedish Lapland you get many opportunities to take a sleigh ride with reindeer, an excellent chance to get to know the region’s most obvious wildlife. Allow yourself to be driven through a snowy landscape, an experience beyond the ordinary. Check with your local tourist office to find the nearest tour operator.
Riding on a sled pulled by a number of lively energetic dogs is a popular winter pastime and is available in several formats. It is a breathtaking journey through forests and over plains. Impressions from this dizzying ride don’t dissolve easily.
Our fishing season is short and intense, summer nights are bright and during June and July the sun never drops below the horizon. We have access to five free flowing rivers, creeks, forest lakes, mountain lakes and the fish never sleeps. We always bring the coffee pot, matches, and something to eat, so that you have enough energy to fish all through the night. We can offer fishing for salmon, trout, grayling, char and pike.
Hunting is a big part of our culture and traditions here in the north, and it has been ever since the first people moved up here to the north after the last ice age. With the closeness to nature, we have a unique opportunity to follow the populations, recognize individuals and get a good understanding of what happens with the game, this securing the sustainable hunting of a viable wildlife population. Our wish is to share our love of hunting and wildlife with you, whether you prefer to do it with a camera or through the scope.
Saunaevening under the stars, Kangos
Shed the stress, loosen tight muscles and untangle your thoughts while sitting in the hot log sauna by the Lainio River. Feel the steam roll through the room after water was poured on the hot stones. Take a dip in the snow or dive into the river to cool off. Let your mind wander, or just have a good time and a cold beer.
There are many ways to enjoy a sauna, but there is always the same result: a comfortably relaxed body and mind.
We also have a hot tub on the terrace by the river, if you rather enjoy fresh air and warm water instead of the sauna.

Laestadiuspörtet became the residence of the Pajala's first pastor, the temperance campaigner, botanist and scientist Lars Levi Laestadius.
He lived there from 1849 until his death in 1861, only 61 years old.
He died in this old rectory in the chamber lying on a bearskin on the floor.

The foundry at Kengis rapids is a monument to the bygone industrial epoch which began in the 1640's.
The background to the foundry's origins are iron ore discovery in Masugnsbyn year 1642. The find was made, according to legend, by a squirrel hunter. Hunter missed its target, with bow and arrow, but did not want to lose his valuable arrow so he followed the path of the arrow. The arrow was found on a rock, and when it was disconnected he felt the iron-shod tip was pulled against the stone. It was found to contain magnetic iron ore, magnetite.

Fishing for Europes biggest salmon, Muodoslompolo
Salmon and sea-trout come up the Tornio River system all the long way from the Baltic Sea. The rivers are called Tornio (Torne), Muonio and Lainio, and they are of tradition the most important salmon-rivers in the Baltic area. Famous for holding the biggest of all Atlantic Salmons.
Depending on the fishing situation each day, we have, during one week, the possibility to fish in them all!
The last years the amount of salmon in the river has increased dramatically. Due to stronger regulations in the sea-fishing, especially the 2008 prohibition of drifting nets in the Baltic, the rivers are coming back in old shape again. This is one of the most thrilling fishing areas for Atlantic salmon.
The salmons are caught, from the shores and standing on the smaller islands. The size of the salmon goes from 5 kg to around 30 kg for the biggest ones...
The fishing is done around the clock as the sun never sets, the Midnight Sun....
During your stay it is possible to try our excellent grayling waters. The wetlands have very many lakes, and these hold a lot of perch and pike.
