Andre & Barbara, Germany:
''Thank you very much for this nice trip. We really enjoyed the wilderness, canoeing, fishing, BBQ, camping and relaxing.
The best feed back of all: we want to do it again!''
One of Sweden’s longest rivers, great for exploring by canoe or kayak. Normally flowing at around 2 kph, it’s a river that offers something for everyone. Ideal for first time paddlers.
For our very popular canoe day tours, we offer trips from 16 to 22km, starting upstream and returning to Byns. In our opinion, this is though one of the most beautiful parts of the river.
If you’re planning a day tour by kayak, you might like to make a longer day tour and start at Stöllet, a great trip of around 42kms back to Byns.
Many guests see wildlife on their tour, we have even had guests see a bear high on the hillside along the way.
Price example - Canoe day tour for 2 guests including transport only 550kr!
We then offer several multi-day tours options from 2 to 10 days. Why not paddle the classic tour of Sysslebäck to Byns? Around 94km, ideal for 4 to 6 days travel.
Price example - 4 day tour Branäs to Byns for 2 guests in standard canoe including transport only 1600kr!
Price example – 4 days tour Branäs to Byn large canoe, room for more equipment (or the dog) only 1700kr!
We have the ideal solution for many families who want to paddle together, why not opt for our Big Canadian package? The Big Canadian is a great Gatz canoe with 5 seats, very stable and easy for 2 adults to paddle and control. This means that parents with 2 or 3 small children can paddle in the same canoe and share the workload. You still have space for equipment too.
Included in the package is a Tipi tent big enough for the whole family to have the comfort and security of spending the nights together.
This also works for 3 adults wanting to paddle together and still have plenty of space for equipment.

Klarälvdalen Grand TourThis year, we are for the first time, offering guests the chance to paddle from Sysslebäck in the north down to Karlstad at the southern end of Klarälven, a distance of over 220km. The second half of the journey will involve making 7 land transports.
Arno Gatz and family on Klarälven
All the equipment we hire is in excellent condition. Our basis principle is: Would we use it ourselves? Our canoes are from the well know German manufacturer Gatz. We had the great pleasure of organising 2 tours for Arno Gatz, founder of the company, and some of his family. Now in his mid seventies, Arno still retains his passion for paddling.
We have a selection of Gatz canoes and can fill the needs of solo paddlers right though to the family sized 5.9 metre long Big Canadian.
For our camping equipment, we selected Marmot & Helsport tents and sleeping bags, trangia cookers etc.
We pay particular attention to safety equipment and have 7 different sizes of swim vests to ensure a correct fit for all guests.
Included in our hire equipment, we have waterproof barrels, waterproof rucsacs and transport wheels.
