The Pearl River Nature Reserve with canoe or kayak (3-14 days)

This is a true wilderness area! You will meet less people than in Sarek National Park.
Lake Karats is long and narrow and stretches approx 25 km from east to west. In the east there is flat areas with small islands and islets. In the west the valley gets more narrow and the lake is lined by small mountains. You find different kinds of forests here. Everything from pine forests to deciduous forests, mountain birch and bare mountains. You have to be careful the wind can come pretty fast and give high waves.
When you paddle in this area you need the map called ”Fjällkartan BD11 Tjåmotis”.

From Karats you can lift the canoes/kayaks past the whitewater rapids in Lillselet over to the next lake called Peuraure, which is the same size as Karats lake. Between the lakes it’s an uneven trail so it’s not possible to use a canoe cart so, you need to carry the canoe/kayak.

You need to have good outdoor experience to canoe or kayak in this area. There is no marked trails, big parts of the area has no cellphone connection, it’s far away from help and very few people travel here. In this area you can spend everything from a weekend to several weeks by mixing canoeing, hiking, fishing and outdoor life.
For information about fishing regulations and fishing permits read the:
Jokkmokk Fishing Guide.
