The Reisa River – Lapland fishing in stunning scenery

We recommend salmon fishing in the Reisa River, a beautiful river winding through a stark canyon landscape. The river is 100km (70miles) long, flowing from the Finnish tundra down to the sea only 30 minutes from Lyngen Lodge. The Reisa is divided into 19 unique fishing zones: Zones 1-10 are easily accessible via the road from Storslett to Bilto. Here, the river spans 30-50 meters, with deep pools, fast sections, and slower pars along the meandering way.

Our special boat can also take you upstream to the upper 30km of the river, an area of stunning natural beauty.
