Boden When you visit Boden and the surrounding forest and river valleys, you'll be absolutely enchanted...
It is magical to both fall asleep and wake up so close to nature, in silence, with a beautiful view to rest your eyes upon. Start the morning with a refreshing bath in a small cosy lake. Make sure to try the sauna. It’s a refreshing feeling that strengthens the body and soul, even more so under the midnight sun or starry autumn night. During the winter season the Northern Lights dance above you gainst a jewelled sky.
In terms of accommodation, Boden is the perfect spot for glamping along the Råne River Valley, cosy rooms and cottages at Sörbyn Lodge or a great accommodation experience with designed tree rooms at the Treehotel. When the lively, accessible summer or winter forest opens it's gates, nature and adventure go hand in hand, providing attractions in the form of tranquillity and challenges. There are plenty of engaging activities for young and old.
Woodlands & River Valleys
In Swedish Lapland, you're are never far away from nature, the forest or the river – whicheverone you enjoy most. The forest is as important to Lapland as water; indispensible to all manner of life here. The tradition of using the forest has followed man since time immemorial. A trip along one of the stretching roads is lined with almost endless forests. If you are lucky, you may see wild animals such as reindeer or moose along the road as well. If not, moose farms or a reindeer pastures guarantee a close meeting with them.
In the woodlands, several lakes and swamps, some of which originate from cold sources, are known to have incredibly clean water. There is much to discover in the forest, which consist of many different habitats of a different character. The river valleys and the rivers have been throughout history the roadways connecting the mountains to the sea. High up along their forested banks one finds lakes and streams and people living in the wilderness. Closer to the coast the forest opens up to farming land on the fertile river banks. The wild and undeveloped rivers all have their history and character, for example:
Torne River – flowing slowly, forming the border with Finland.
Pite River – with the impressive waterfall/rapid Storforsen, the largest in Europe.
Råne River – great for fishing and fly-fishing, with good availability year round.
