Tourism Review recommends river rafting above the Arctic Circle
Tourism Review, an online news service for the niche of travel trade professionals, says that some of the best rafting in Europe can be found on the Kaitum River, where visitors can experience the thrill of rafting down Class IV rapids north of the Arctic Circle. A number of adventure companies provide professional guidance to negotiate the rougher sections.
You need to take a helicopter to arrive at Tjuonajokk as there are no roads or people – just spectacular, untouched and mountainous nature. The white river tumbles through Lappland, and more than 100 km further on it flows in the River Kalix. Speeds of 50 to 60 km/h can be reached and the journey can last up to five days.
