Experience the north

Welcome to Vitsaniemi gård

Located in the beautiful Swedish north

Welcome to Vitsaniemi gård, a small family business located right at the riverbank of the Torne River in Swedish Lapland.

Experience the midnight sun, the quietness, the untamed wilderness and the northern lights.

We offer accommodation, hunting- and fishing packages.

Our offer

We can offer different packages for hunting, fishing and lodging. From full board and hunting permits to accommodation.

Hunting

Hunting of moose, the king of the forest, is the highlight of the year for many. Moose hunting in Tornedalen always starts at the same time every year, the first Monday in September. It is one of the most beautiful and fantastic times of the year to be outdoors as the nature is glowing in different colors and the air is crisp and clear.

Fishing

Welcome to one of northern Europe’s best, but yet unknown, fishing waters and destinations. The Tornio river (also called Torne river) is one of the National rivers and is 520 km long. The river is famous for its big salmon. The average weight per fish is around 6-8 kg but it is not uncommon to catch fish as big as 20 kg. We can offer different fishing packages, from fly fishing in the rapids, fishing Salomon with net from boat, pike fishing in lake and icefishing in wintertime.

Lodging

We can offer several lodging possibilities that make it possible to host a variety of groups or single persons. Lodging varies from modern standard studio to rural cabins located in the wilderness. Our main house, that originates from early 1900, serves as dinner place for the guests that request full board.
