Jockfall, also known as the salmon fisherman’s paradise – offers accommodation in cabins, caravan sites and tent sites located right beside Kalix River and next to the Jockfallet waterfall with a fall height of nine meters.

The restaurant serves mainly food from Norrbotten, everything from homemade hamburgers to reindeer fillet, and many different salmon dishes – where Jockfallaren is a given favourite. The Jockfallare is a special dish made of salmon, crushed potatoes, onion and melted butter served in a soft homemade thin bread with salad. The restaurant has a large balcony overlooking the waterfall. The nearby surroundings offer hiking trails and other nature activities.

If you want to try your fishing luck, this is one of Europe’s best salmon fishing waters. You can rent complete fishing equipment in Jockfall’s sports fishing shop. Another pleasure is to follow the salmon’s journey in the salmon stairs.

Jockfall is an established fishing camp that has a good reputation among salmon fishermen worldwide. The resort is also visited by day tourists who want to watch the fishing, the waterfall and not least to enjoy the famous Jockfallare in the restaurant.

The cabins offer a view of the river and the falls. The cabins are about 65 square meters, with 2 bedrooms, sleeping loft, family room, toilet, shower and a kitchen that can accommodate up to six people.
