An unforgettable experience

A timber raft trip is an exciting adventure, whether it’s a long or short journey. Building the raft involves physical effort and teamwork. Logs are rolled from the shore into the water and tied together to make the raft. After a day’s work, you can admire your raft and spend the night in a cozy cabin before setting off on your timber raft the next day.

We can recommend booking an extra night in the cabin after the timber raft trip. Then it is no need for rush and you will be able to enjoy the day on the river more.

To build your own timber raft is a big part of the adventure and experience.

Note! In “Economy cabins” you are not allowed to use sleeping bags, you need to use sheets. In “Budget cabins” you can use your own sleeping bag if you wish.

On the other side of the road from the campsite is Mac 45, which sells hamburgers and other meal options; on weekdays there is a lunch offer. There is also a petrol station with a charging point for electric vehicles. You can purchase basic groceries at the petrol station during their open hours 09.00 – 20.00.

  • A balance of challenges and relaxation.
  • Choose between different types of cabins.

Make sure you eat a proper lunch before arriving, the afternoon will be long and physically challenging. Depending on the number of people, it takes about 3 to 4 hours to build a timber raft. When the raft is complete and you have received your equipment for the next day’s journey, you moor the raft and stay overnight in the accommodation you have booked. In the evening you can use the fireplaces to barbecue, or unwind and rent our wood-heated sauna for a relaxing evening.

The next day you start your journey down the river Klarälven. Expect a journey filled with breathtaking scenery and surprises like sandbanks and eddies along the way. If you want to make the most of the day and not rush off right after timber rafting, add another night and stay in a cabin at Klarälvens Camping.

Please review our travel conditions.

Can we bring the dog?

You are welcome to bring your dog, but you must consider the following:

– You must keep the dog leashed at the meeting point and at the building site (if you have booked a timber raft tour). It is also important that you always have the dog under supervision on the journey, because you are traveling in an area where there are wild animals.

– If you make a longer trip (3-8 days), local transport is included. If there is another person traveling in the same vehicle who is allergic to dogs, you must be prepared to transport your dog to the start of the tour yourself.

– Some dogs are very sensitive to mosquitoes. There is not much you can do, but it is usually not a problem when you are out in the canoe or on the timber raft, but can be a concern when you go ashore for the night.

– We do not have life jackets for dogs. Bring your own if your dog needs it.

– It can be long days on the river if you travel on a timber raft or paddle a canoe when the dog must be still. But if the dog likes to swim, it is usually not a major problem.

Can we drink the water in the rivers/lakes?

The water can only be drunk if it is boiled. The water can therefore be used for all cooking, coffee, tea, etc. On longer trips (3-8 days) you will get freshwater containers in the basic equipment that you can fill up before you set off. You don´t have to boil the water to brush your teeth or wash the dishes. Remember to bring biodegradable washing-up liquid!

Where is our starting (meeting) point?

Depending on which package you have booked, there are different meeting points. NOTE! If you search Vildmark i Värmland on Google, or any other search engine, you will come to our office in Torsby. NO tours start from here! You will find information where your specific meeting point is in your travel documents that you have received when you made the booking/payment. It is usually found at the end of the travel document.

What do we do if we want to fish?

It is fine to try fishing on all our different tours, but you must have a fishing license. You can purchase fishing licenses at the starting point for all tours except canoe tours that start in Torsby (Röjdån and Rottnan). If you start your canoeing in Torsby, you buy a fishing license at “ifiske.se”. (Seach: Lekvattnets FVOF for Rottnan and Velens FVOF for Röjdån)

Are there a lot of mosquitoes?

There are always mosquitoes. How much depends on how dry, hot, and wet it is/has been. A heavy spring flood with subsequent heat brings a lot of mosquitoes. However, it is very rare that there are mosquito’s over open water. The mosquitoes are mainly active on land and in the evening. Mosquito repellent and covering clothing are the best protection. As far as it is known, the mosquitoes in this area does not carry any infections.

Is it possible to travel by train and bus to you?

You can travel by bus alternatively by train from Karlstad to the meeting point of most of our packages. It all depends on which package you have booked, and which day you will arrive to us. Should you, for example, start your canoe- or timber raft trip on a Saturday or Sunday in Gunnerud, there is no bus to Gunnerud on these days. If you will arrive to Gunnerud on a Saturday or Sunday, you can travel by bus to the bus stop “Sjögränd” (just south of Gunnerud) and we can arrange a transfer free of charge to Gunnerud (if you arrive with the bus connection that is closest to the start time of your booked trip). Notify us at the time you make your booking if you need transfer.

A good balance of number of participants. Enough not to be crowded on the river, yet completly solitude, once on the water. Created a safe atmosphere about not being alone if you get stuck, on the other hand great peace and quiteness.
