General information about Lainio

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 here.

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.

Fishing waters
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.
