Adventure is waiting for you! After these unprecedented times of lock-downs due to the COVID-19 pandemic and living in a virtual world, it is time to get back to nature. We believe everybody needs to escape our modern society every now and then for moments of adventure, slowing-down and reflection. Our mission is to inspire people to get in touch with their primitive self. Paddling through untouched nature, spotting wildlife, making campfire, fishing, cooking on wood fire, making tea from pine needles and camping in the wild: you will be completely absorbed in the here-and-now. The overwhelming power of mother nature, clean air and physical exercise will bring you in a state of deep relaxation. Lose your mind and find your soul!

Reviews from people who joined us before

"Never before have I been able to enjoy nature so intensely as during this amazing canoeing trip. Every day was a series of highlights like the magic morning dew on the lake of Fjällrämmen, the scent of pine trees and the color spectrum of the sun going down behind the trees on the hills. Never before have I felt more one with nature and myself. Even the most simple things like making a delicious fresh cup of coffee in the early morning will make you let go completely of the daily hassles back home. Next year I will go again!" -Peter, 2020

 

"An amazing tour to experience the superior beauty of Swedish nature. It overwhelmed me and made me feel like a tiny player in the big system of mother nature. It made me see the relativity of things (again) that dominate our daily lives back home and unnecessarily limit us. The experience gave me new ideas and insights that I will be able to build on for a long time" -Peter, 2019

 

"The tour was amazing! We felt so energized and full of joy. It made us playful, like when we were children." -Joris & Lotte, 2019

 

"This was my first experience with wildlife and I was surprised at home much I enjoyed being absorbed by the canoeing and camping. It gave me visions of Vikings and how adventurous it must have been for them to wander around looking for a good place to settle". -Marjan & Angelique, 2019


Our value proposition!

When you want to do a canoeing tour for the first time, it raises a lot of questions: where can I find a beautiful route? What kind of materials do I have to bring? What will the experience be like? When you google for 'canoeing trips'', most providers will offer you a packed bus-ride to Sweden and you will end up on a touristy lake with 50 other paddlers. Not exactly a wilderness experience...

Based on 10 years of experience we know what it takes to have the best nature experience: 

  1. We will relieve you from searching and preparing your trip: all you have to do, is get to Sweden to meet us and everything will be waiting for you. 
  2. We will arrange solid materials for you: a full-camping package (including sleeping gear), a food package and a fishing rod. In addition, we will arrange drop-off with your gear at the start of the tour and pick-up at the end. 
  3. Professional instructions about your materials, paddle technique, and wild camping tips at the start of the tour. 
  4. We will make sure you will have an amazing wilderness experience. No commercial tours with busy canoeing lakes, but true silence!
