The journey is the road!
Traveling along this magnificent river is breathtaking
You, in a seakayak, on the river, making your way downstream
Mindfulness in motion!
The Vindel River is one of our few unregulated rivers and now also a Biosphere Reserve designated by UNESCO.
This river is fantastic to paddle on. Here we use sea kayaks and can go a fairly long distance during the day.
About the tour
The tour start at Wild Lapland´s sled dog kennel where we will try out life jackets and make sure we have everything we need for the day. Then we will take the car and go to our starting point, only 10 minutes away.
At the river we will have a safety instruction and you will be able to try out the kayaks before we get going.
We will stop along the river to have lunch outdoor and take a much needed break before continuing downstream to our goal.
Sea kayaking is more difficult than fishing kayaking and requires better balance from you. But the part of the Vindel River we paddle on is relatively simple and we do not go through any rapids.
Your guide will go through how you do and what you need to think about in the water and will of course be with you throughout the trip to answer any questions you may have.
