The beautiful Vuaka trail is situated in central Arjeplog. A 2 km (1,2 mi) easily accessible trail on foot or wheels, since it has has footbridges and duckboards to help you conveniently enjoy the scenery. Here are also jettys for fishing, privys and spots designed for rest and barbecueing, shielded from wind and rain. A perfect way to enjoy an outdoor Swedish fika.
The entire Vauka trail, along the streams and the walkways in central Arjeplog, is a refreshing hike of 7 km (4 mi).
The area offers a variety of animal- and plant life. Most common are squirrel, mink, hare, fox, elk and reindeer. Those curious about our local flavours can have a taste of the blueberries growing in the area surrounding the duckboards, or why not look for yellow chanterelles.
The streams surrounding the trail are also a particularly interesting spot for the fishing enthusiast, since they are the home of a special type of trout called Arjeplog trout. Whitefish and grayling can also be caught along the Vauka trail.
However, remember to buy your fishing license before heading out. You can do that for example at Arjeplog Fishing Centre, located at the fishing store GK’s Fiske, or at the Tourist Information at Silvermuseet. They can also provide you with further tips on activities and places to visit.
