Equipment

Basic equipment Bergslagen

Contents: Canoe, paddles, canoe trolley, life jacket, toilet spade, one waterproof pack barrel (app. 60L) and one waterproof dry bag (app. 40L) per canoe, sponge, short rope, fresh water container (5L), garbage sacks, topographical maps, information and local transport.

Note! You need to buy your own topographical maps. If you want to buy them from us, please let us know in advance. You have to pack your personal equipment in a backpack, because the canoe trolley is not made to carry everything. The canoe is 5.25 m long and can take 400 kg, but please try to minimise your packing.

Kitchen equipment Bergslagen

Contents: Hurricane stove with spirit, mug, plate, knife, fork, spoon, carving knife, chopping board, frying spatula, cheese plane, whisk, tin and bottle opener, potato peeler, dishcloth, washing-up liquid, kitchen roll, matches.

If booking kitchen equipment, all participants in the same canoe must choose the same equipment. At least 2 persons.

Tent

For tours lasting three days or longer, you rent a tent made by the famous Swedish tentmaker, Hilleberg. The model used is called Nallo and is recommended for four persons. Please note that, in spite of the specification, the space per person is not very big. The inner tent measures 210 x 220 centimetres and is high enough to sit up in. Since the tent has only one porch, you will keep the main part of your equipment under your canoe. To make your tent as comfortable as possible, you will need to bring - or rent - a sleeping bag and an outdoor mattress.

Please note! No dogs or other animals are permitted in our tents.
