RÅNE RIVER

THE RESTORATION IS FINISHED

IN THE UPPER 80 KILOMETRES OF THE MAIN STEM, THE RÅNE RIVER CALMLY FLOWS AND IS ADDED BY SMALLER RIVERS. FROM RAPID MUORKAFORS JUST BELOW THE ARCTIC CIRCLE TO LAKE VALVTRÄSK HOLDS POWERFUL CURRENTS AND LONGER RAPID STRETCHES. LARGE LAKES ARE SCARCE IN THE AREA ALONG THE RIVER, AND THE ENVIRONMENT CONSISTS MAINLY OF PINE FOREST.

 

THE LAST 50 KILOMETRES VARIES WITH LARGE LAKES WITH SHORT RAPIDS BETWEEN THEM. IN ÄLVDALEN, AREAS WITH FINE SEDIMENT DOMINATE ON WHICH EXTENSIVE AGRICULTURAL LANDS ARE LOCATED.
