Family Canoeing Adventure On The Indalsälven River (Tegefors-Åre)

  • Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Åre
  • Product code: P20XBQ

A family-friendly, self-guided canoe tour, where you paddle the beautiful Indalsälven river, specifically, the stretch between Tegefors and Åre. It is approximately a 5-kilometer paddle downriver, where the current is not too strong, and the last kilometer of the route takes you along the shores of Lake Åresjön. You receive instructions and equipment from one of our guides at the launch point, so that your party may paddle independently at your own pace, from launch point to retrieval point. When you arrive at the destination, we will pick up your driver and shuttle them back to your parked car.

This tour offers exquisite views and perhaps a glimpse of arctic char and trout in the water around the canoe, or wildlife on the shores. The trip takes about 3 hours in total, of which 1-2 hours are spent paddling down the river.
