Your guide to the raft adventure

How it works

Whether you are a family, a school class or a group of friends, a timber raft tour is a unique experience. If you enjoy nature and adventure, we promise you memories for life.

Easy and well-planned

We provide you with all the necessary equipment and information, leaving you free to focus solely on the experience.

Right equipment for your tour
In addition to the basic equipment (which always includes a canoe), you can rent kitchen equipment, tent and sleeping bags.
Camp in Gunnerud
The first night you stay in your own or rented tent in Gunnerud. The camp offers basic facilities like hot water for dishes, drinking water, outhouse and bath in the river. Just to get in the right mode before the tour…

Master of your own house

Travelling on the raft you have built yourselves adds an extra dimension to your experience. Our experienced instructors are ready to help you.

On the river at last

The journey on the raft allows time for discussion and socialising that you often do not have time for in everyday life. But as well as just enjoying the beautiful surroundings, be prepared for both calm and intense periods on board. Below the water's surface there is plenty of sand and occasionally stones that you may not see until you are stuck....


From time to time, things happen that involve the entire crew. It might be backwaters, a fish that bites or something else exciting along the river.


There are plenty of reasons to make stops and go ashore along the river: an ice cream, an attraction or a short hike in the beautiful surroundings are a few suggestions.


Many of our guests specifically mention cooking outdoors as something special.


We recommend overnight camps on land, but it is also possible to stay overnight on board. The bright summer evenings in Sweden contribute to the atmosphere.


The river is rich in wildlife, including beaver, moose and deer. The Right of Public Access to the countryside in Sweden gives you permission to access nature, as long as you are careful, aware of your obligations and do not cause any damage.


Upon arrival at your final destination, you dismantle your raft according to our instructions. Since you built it with special loops/knots, this process is relatively quick and easy. The last stop is located right by the car park.
