Welcome to beautiful, majestic Storforsen Rapids! The nature reserve is one of the most visited in Norrbotten County. Here you can experience close up one of the biggest rapids in the Nordic countries. The area is 1.2 square kilometres in size. Snowmobiling is banned in the entire area, nor may you light a fire or pitch a tent except at prepared sites, or cycle, all ride a horse without the permission of the County Administrative Board.
