Packraft Adventure tours

A packraft is a small, inflatable dinghy style boat. It only weighs a few kilograms and is easy to carry with you, yet it’s stable and durable enough to take you safely through epic adventures in the wilderness! And the best part, it’s really fun to paddle.

Since the packraft is lightweight, durable, ultra portable yet stable and easy to maneuver, it’s the perfect tool to use when exploring creeks, rivers and rapids. For our guided packrafting tours we chose among a variety of river sections depending on what’s best for the day and most suitable for the group. We have about ten options in Sweden and Norway and the guides for the day will take you to any of them in Sälen, Trysil, Särn or Idre.  The brave guests are welcome to run some rapids, the packraft is stable and durable enough for white water rafting and we are keen to show you the methods used for safe and fun river running.

Adventure day tour: We meet at in Lindvallen to go through the gear, then we head towards the starting point. This tour is suitable for adults and teens longing for an adventure, there might be some hiking to reach the water and the river will be running fast for some bits and will demand active paddling to steer the boat and avoid objects in the stream. We paddle for a few hours and break for lunch when people start feeling hungry. Expect to be back around 3 PM.
