    An inter-regional collaborative project to organise nature-based business activity in the Helgeland - Vsterbotten region

    We are finally well underway with improving some of the worlds best and most valuable resources the rich natural resources in the inner parts of Helgeland (Norway) and Vsterbotten (Sweden).

    As part of the important area of nature-based tourism, angling tourism has a huge potential in this region. We are now taking hold of this potential through the establishment of the project Fishing Cross the Border.

    The projects goals

    Fishing Cross the Border forms part of the Botnia-Atlantica programme and its overall goal is to organise business development within angling tourism.Through cross-border cooperation, we are aiming to create a completely new world-class angling destination.

    This project is an inter-municipal and inter-regional collaboration between the municipalities of Lycksele, Storuman and Sorsele in Sweden and Vefsn, Grane and Hattfjelldal in Norway.

    The projects target group is established and potential fishing tourism entre-preneurs and owners of fishing rights within the six municipalities.

    The project shall:

    increase the target groups knowledge through competence-enhancing initiatives in both a national and international perspective

    create a natural and border-free fishing destination with a focus on high quality angling where it feels national to cross the international border to maximise your fishing and nature-based experience

    enable entrepreneurs in both countries to learn from each other and take part in the knowledge that today exists on both sides of the border via cross-border education and the exchange of information

    implement pilot projects aimed at accessibility and infrastructure in con-nection with the fishing areas

  • 5A small slice of paradiseHaustreis Grd (farm) is located in the mountain village of Haustreisa in Inner Helge-land. Haustreisa is a real pearl for those in search of peace and quiet and genuine nature-based experiences. Just a few kilometres of the E6 highway, you are right in the midst of the wild and beautiful inland nature of Helgeland.

You can catch fish here weighing between 200 g and 3 kg. You can stay overnight in a log cabin or Sami lavvu (herdsmens tent) and you can make use of our boat. Fishing licences are sold at the farm.

    Langtjnna is a unique fishing lake containing both Arctic char and trout. Both species have lived side by side here for countless years without the need for release or regula-tion of fish stocks. This is how it has always been here and this is how it will always remain. You can fish in Langtjnna wither fly, spinner or worm.

    The Arctic char bites best just after the ice has melted and the water is still cold. The char normally weigh between 200 g and 3 kg, but char weighing more than 4 kg have been caught here. As the water temperature warms up in the early summer, the trout bites most. Trout caught here normally weigh between 200 g and 2 kg.
