The River Kaitum
The Kaitumälven stretches through an enormously beautiful landscape, surrounded by almost vertically sloping, dark hillsides in the upper parts. Further down, a beautiful wood of mountain birch takes over and it grows thicker as the river flows on.
In the valley of Kaitum, far north of the Polar circle, you might see bears, golden eagles and sea eagles. With the Kebnekaise in the background, the buzz of the mosquitos, the splashing and surge from the river, the scenery is barren and harsh – and exceptionally beautiful!
Kaitumälven is widely known for its graylings and salmon trout, but it is also possible to catch char and lavaret. Pointed fishing for pike is normally very good, and fish weighing up to 18 kg have been caught in the area! There are salmon in the river as well, but not that many in the area we normally stay.
