Our region, where we are based in Swedish Lapland is also known as the land of the lakes and forrests. Thus, hiking very often is limited or hindered by water. The solution is simple - packrafting! The packraft is a super light, foldable boat and with only 3,8 kg a feasible weight to carry by rucksack. Even the paddle weighs almost nothing and is intermateable. So when we reach water, the packrafts are swiftly inflated with help of the water repellent packing bag. 3, 2, 1 and off we continue our adventure in the water. This is truely a refreshing and sometimes also action packed possibility to experience the awesome nature of Swedish Lapland at its core. Of course, we tailor the adventure individually to the experience level of the participants.
This could be your adventure
First we provide you with all the necessary equipment for the packrafting hike incl. a packraft, life vest and water repellent bag for your personal belongings, as well as food & beverage for the adventure.
When all the participants are ready, we head out into Europe's last wilderness. As soon as we reach the first water crossing, we show you how to properly inflate and prepare your packraft. After a brief safety and practical instruction, we continue our adventure in the water.
During the tour we will find a lot of beautiful spots for awesome photos. During late summer and autumn you might even be spoiled with tasty, ripe blueberries or lingonberries growing along our way. You can pick and enjoy them directly from the bush.
About halfway through the adventure we take a break. Given weather conditions and respective tour length, we make a fire, cook coffee and enjoy the vast space and nature all around us. After finishing our snacks and with recharged batteries we continue on land or in the water.
Back at Sandsjögården we first unpack the equipment and lay out the packrafts to dry. If you feel like pampering yourself after the adventure, our log fired sauna is the perfect choice for you. Alternatively, a hot shower may also do the trick. We close the adventure with an afternoon fika (hot drink and a sweet treat).
Why not round up your day at beautiful lake Sandsjön by spoiling your palates with a cosy dinner?
