Our friend Munken

4 months ago

When Lars Munk, aka Munken, decided to go all in at salmon fishing, he settled down along Torneälven in Pajala, Swedish Lapland. Back then, in the early 2010 very few salmon migrated the rivers in northern Sweden but that were about to change — drastically.

The number of salmon running the rivers increased over the years and now the river system of Torneälven is considered to be one of the most productive Atlantic salmon systems in the world.

Meanwhile Munken and his friends have gathered an impressive track record of catch big Baltic salmon on the fly, with Kristian Stridman’s impressive fish of 128 centimeters at the top — and Munken always seem to have something to do with it.

ROAD TRIPS

Through midnight sun and endless roads. From the magic mountains in the west, deep into the woodlands and all the way to the islands in the east. This is your adventure along the roads of Swedish Lapland.

A TASTE OF
THE ARCTIC

We keep honestly prepared food from local produce close to heart. That comes quite naturally since nature’s pureness, and lots of great ingredients surround us. Taste all the goodness of nature that has over centuries adapted to life in our arctic environment.

SUMMER IN
THE ARCTIC

In summer, above the Arctic Circle, the sun doesn't set – a phenomenon known as the midnight sun. Depending on where you are in Swedish Lapland, you can experience it from May to July. The further north you go, the shorter the nights. The best thing about it? You can do whatever you want at any time!

ARCTIC
LIFESTYLE

The everyday arctic lifestyle is deeply rooted in nature. We live our lives under the northern lights and the midnight sun, amid hail and black flies, wet snow and intense sunlight. We dry our meat in the spring, smoke our fish in the summer and boil our coffee over an open fire all year round.

THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

Not only is Abisko, Swedish Lapland, within the Aurora oval but the surrounding mountains also keep the skies clear and there's barely any light pollution. This is probably the world's best place for the Aurora Borealis.

ICONIC
PLACES

There are some things in life that you just have to do – and some places you just have to visit. Like the world's best place for northern lights, or spending the night at the original ICEHOTEL Make it happen sooner rather than later.

FLY FISHING
HEAVEN

Four national rivers and countless tributaries and thousands of streams from mountains to coast, more than 30,000 lakes and a coastline of over 1,500 kilometres – this is fly fishing heaven. And Swedish Lapland has room for a few more fishers.

ARCTIC
WELLNESS

From the woods to the town, from the sauna to the spa, from great food and treatments to the stillness of the night. The north offers the perfect escape for feeling well.

LET'S GO
HIKING

You can hike overlooking the sea or Sweden's highest mountaintops. It can be a hike to the cloudberry marshes or along a winding forest trail – when the silence, the lack of cell phone coverage and the breathtaking views hit you.

CLOSE
TO NATURE

It has always been said a walk in the woods and a breath of fresh air can do wonders. Maybe that’s why we love spending time in nature. And with midnight sun in summer, northern lights in winter and sparkling colours in Autumn, it’s wonderful all year round.

THE LOVE
FOR SKIING

Yes, that is what we do here in Swedish Lapland. We ski. From late autumn to mid-summer, under the northern lights and the midnight sun. It's a love affair from the moment we get our first skis at an early age.

WINTER IN
THE ARCTIC

In Swedish Lapland, we embrace the winter months – and you will too. What’s not to love about dramatic winter landscapes, crystal clear-evenings and stunning northern lights dancing across the sky? And then all the things you can do!
