"Follow the Roar"

One of Norrbotten County's most visited parks, the Storforsen Nature Reserve is a landscape of unblemished forests riddled with streams and hiking trails. The eponymous Storforsen is the centerpiece of the park - a formidable 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) stretch of rapids that drops 82 meters (269 feet), a majority of which forms a single, turbulent waterfall that crashes over the rocks. This is one of Europe's largest rapids, a magnificent expanse of roiling water that declares the wherewithal of the Pite River with a thunderous roar. This is just one of the reserves many charms, however. The forests are teeming with wildlife, while birds of prey scour the water from above in search of easy pickings. There are well-marked hiking trails to explore and picnic spots where families gather to enjoy a meal amid the wilderness. Set beneath a sky of vaulted blue, Storforsen Nature Reserve is an accessible slice of the vast natural landscape of Sweden.
