When you're in Piteå you absolutely SHOULD rent a car or find a friend to drive you to Storforsen, which is a nature reserve and a large white water rapid in the Pite river. The rapid itself is situated in Älvsbyn municipality so I've put my tips on it there, but here you can see a travelogue of the place:


Address: Älvsbyn
Directions: Some 100 km nw of Piteå along road 374. When you reach the Älvsbyn crossing of the roads, continue straight ahead following the signs for "Storforsen"

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
