Bring your family on a nature adventure with focus on the children. With packraft and inflatable canoe we move through an exciting and beautiful environment. Although we are near the city of Askersund we pass through an area where the lush green reminds us of the jungle. While we paddle along the river we also search for beaver and if we are lucky we will hear the characteristic sound of the tail against the water when it is diving.
From the river we will pass under some bridges and come to a wetland area, Lindbomossen, where built up islands have become home to many different bird species. We paddle among the the islands and stop for a Swedish fika – a break with coffee, juice and buns. After the break we go back to the river and turn towards Askersund.
Practical information and reservations
The tour starts in the harbour of Askersund were we prepare the packrafts and/or canoe together. Packrafts are very stable and easy to paddle also for younger children. Paddling on your own as a child is normally highly appreciated and for most children the technic comes very natural. Depending on age, experience and weather it is also possible to attach a rope between the adult’s packraft and the one of the child. Like that, the child can lean back and rest a bit from time to time in case the paddling gets too heavy. It is also possible for the child to paddle canoe or packraft together with an adult.
Adult 625 SEK and children 450 SEK (6-12 years old). Children up to 5 years are free of charge. If you are a large family we have special family prices. For the tour to take place we need minimum two paying persons, one of them should be an adult.
The price includes guide, packraft and/or inflatable canoe, lifewest and a light snack. The tour takes approx. 3 hours.
