Activity description

Rest, relax and explore on this scenic canoeing excursion down the Futelva River in Northern Norway.

A seemingly placid waterway that saunters through the verdant countryside of outer Bodø, the humble Futelva River is home to annual happening that attracts eager anglers from around the peninsular - the Atlantic Salmon Run! A lazy current alive with spawning Sea Trout and Migratory Char, wildlife flock to its banks for a piece of the action - head out on a traditional canoe to experience the calm only 11 km/ 15 min from Bodø.

Location
The Bodø region is located just North of the Arctic Circle and a paradise for sports fishermen due to its excellent salmon rivers and good trout waters in the mountains, many of them easily accessible.

The largest city in the county of Nordland is also just a boat ride away from both Moskenes in Lofoten and the old trading post at Kjerringøy.
