naturen

Nature around Rörströmsälvens Fishing & Outdoor Experience is characterized by silent and desolate wilderness.

It is part of a Natura 2000-conservation area and borders to a primeval forest reserve.

The terrain is hilly and diversified with lots of streams. Rörströmsälven and the Hocksjö rapids run right through the area and there are several bigger and smaller lakes.

 

naturen

Every season has its own charm: in summer the woods, meadows and lakes glow in shades of blue and green, autumn colours the leaves red and gold. In winter everything disappears under a thick blanket of snow – now on clear nights is the best time to watch the stars and the mystical northern lights.

You can enjoy all the magical views and natural spectacles undisturbed in this sparsely populated area. In Rossön there are only 1,2 people per square kilometer - a true paradise for the nature lover, outdoor freak and those who seek peace and quiet.

Catch & chill out: There is hardly anything more relaxing than spending a day at or on the water (or the ice), enjoying the view, feeling the wind on your face, cooking your coffee on a campfire... Try it!

Very close to our facilities you will find lots of fishing waters with drinking water quality. There are lakes with mostly pike and perch, but also burbot, whitefish, roach, ide and bream. In the Hocksjö rapids you'll find also much trout and grayling, and there are waters with trout and arctic char.

You could go trolling on the big, fish-rich lake Lesjön, you can reel in heavy pikes and percidaes on the shore of the beautifully located Bävattnet. Or you can fly fish in the rapids ”Hocksjöforsarna” for trouts and graylings.
