The Riverboat trip to Mollisfossen falls starts at the Sara River Wilderness Center

From here we travel up river and cross the border into the Reisa National Park at Seima. Just a short distance away we can see 4,000 year old rock art which we stop and admire. The river lanscape is thrilling and vibrant.

The long, narrow boat manouvers safely through the waves and frothing passages while we sit safely and comfortably and drink in the intensity of life around us. The colours, sounds and movements dance together in harmony creating a surreal experience, intense and majestic, at the same time simple and peaceful. Streams and waterfalls tumble from the top of steep mountain cliffs to join the Reisa River, sometimes as peaceful streams and at other times cascading and powerful.

The honourable Reisa King, greets us from his permanent home along the banks of the Reisa River. Throughout hundreds of years this great pine has stood here, proud and unshakeable in the river landscape. We can only guess what he could tell of life along the river throughout time.

Eagle or hawk, or maybe a moose or another wild animal along the river bank or in the meadows, is a sight we may be lucky enough to see. When we come to Alttari (the Altar) we observe a ”face” in the rock – and an altar tablet.

Mollisfossen falls, beautiful and overwhelming. When we have arrived at Mollisfossen we steep coffee over a fire. While the coffee steeps, we take a walk behind the falls. Mollisfossen is both beautiful and majestic. An enormous amount og energy propells the water over the cliffs with a roar as from a large press. This is where the name comes from, Mollešgorži in Sami – or Mollisjoki in Finnish.

Take an extra dose of near-waterfall experience which is really worth writing home about. Try walking behind the falls! There, with 6000 kilograms of water plunging to the ground each second, perhaps you learn something new about the power of nature.

Back at the fire, freshly brewed coffee is served in wooden cups. By the way, if you like the cup, you can take one home as a souvenier. You can roast sausages or other goodies you brought along, or enjoy a packed lunch if you wish. Listening to a local legend is an adherent part of the great atmosphere around the fire.
