We meet at our centre in Gunnerud between 13:00 and 14:00 on the date stated on your booking confirmation. Upon arrival you check in at our reception and receive the rented equipment. There you can even buy a fishing permit, mosquito repellent, a T-shirt or other things in our simple shop.
If you have booked the basic outdoor course we offer on Sundays at 9:30 you are welcome to arrive already on Saturday evening and sleep in Gunnerud in your own tent or one rented from us.
At 14:00 we load your equipment in the bus that will bring you to the starting point of your canoe tour. Then we gather all guests going on the same tour for a briefing about canoeing technique, safety and the public access to nature before we drive you to the starting point.
Please remember that you might want to re-pack some of your luggage in the waterproof barrel that is part of the basic equipment. For this reason it is smart not to arrive last minute!
First we arrive to Klarälvens Camping, where the four days-tour starts. Then we continue to Branäs, where the seven days-tour starts (sometimes even the four days-tour starts here. This you will get to know in Gunnerud). Together we unload your equipment and you receive your canoe(s). You start to paddle down the river for a while and look out for a spot for the night, according to the right of public access to nature - Don't disturb, don't destroy!
You decide yourselves about the distance you want to paddle every day. The tour is self-guided but you get a route description, which you should read thoroughly to see what you can discover along the route.
Enjoy the simple life! Take a break along the shore and stretch your legs from time to time!
This is the last day of your canoe tour on Klarälven and you return to Gunnerud before 14:00. You return the rented equipment whole and clean to the designated spots and report to the reception that you are back.
P.S. If you paddle 4 days on Klarälven you might paddle the northern route, which ends in Björkebo. In this case you return your equipment there.
