During the winter Kåbdalis down hill skiing isn’t far away and during the summer there are rapids to explore. The area around Storforsen is full of exciting destinations!
FOR THE EXPLORER
Right between Storforsen and Älvsbyn, along road 374, is Fällforsen – a beautiful waterfall with an 11 meter drop.
By the waterfall there are several grilling places and plenty of parking spots.
If you want to make a longer trip, Trollforsen north of Moskosel is well worth a visit.
Upstream along the Pite River the nature is wild and barren. Together many rapids and streams form a fantastic stair fall around Trollholmen in the middle of the river. You can reach the islet thanks to several small bridges. The entire area is perfect for enjoying the outdoors; with several grilling areas, wandering trails, information signs and resting cabins.
On Slengmyren, close to the village Lomträsk, there is a large and clear cold spring.
The turquoise water of Grodkällan is beautiful against the weathered mires around. Take a seat by the windbreak and gaze at the bubbling from the bottom of the three meters deep springs, caused by the high water pressure. A trail with partial footbridges will take you from Häggsjölidväggen to the springs, which is around a 600 meter walk.
In the winter Kåbdalis is one of Norrbottens most well visited skiing resorts. From Storforsen you can reach Kåbdalis in around half an hour, which makes Storforsen a perfect place to spend the night. After a day of skiing you can let your body rest in our hot tub under the open sky.
There’s a reason why Älvsbyn is often called the jewel of Norrbotten.
The society is nicely embedded in a flourishing forest, surrounded by mountains that meet the rippling Pive River.
With the forest around the corner, outdoor activities are always available.
In the city center there are several cozy shops and cafés.

“We went for a one night break but stayed an extra night as we got a good rate and the management upgraded us to a suite. Fantastic view from the room, great breakfast and lovely walks round the waterfalls and area. Very pleasant and attentive staff and a very clean well run hotel.”

“Outstanding views and the not so distant thunder of Storforsen. Well kept, very nice room, and service minded staff. Evening buffet served 17-19. Some rooms have it included and it really is OK. Make sure to get a room with view to Storforsen!”
