Safari reviews:

“On the moose safari we were hiking in the deep forest, when suddenly a  big moose was rising up from his rest right in front of us. The moment was both a little bit scary and very exciting.“

Jovanna Richez



“Just amazing! Thank you so much for this unforgettable moose safari experience."

Nadia Batzig und Tobias Wayne

Canoe rental - Rent of canoes in Sweden

Rent of canoes in the canoeing paradise, The Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve. The canoes are made out of the modern, strong, hard, plastic material, polyethylene. There are 40 canoes in the fleet. The canoes are transported in Västmanland and the south of Dalarna on bookings. The fleet also includes 25 single kayaks and 5 double kayaks

A steady and stable canoe which we are very content with. A polyethylene canoe in sandwich construction with one layer of small, separated air cells which make the canoe buoyant. The buoyant construction improves the safety of the canoes and allows for more packing space (since flotation blocks are not required). To be compared with canoes without inbuilt buoyancy, with flotation blocks of foam blocking the packing space in the front and in the back (i.e. canoes made of aluminum and fiberglass)

The modern material has together with aluminum proved to be superior compared to older materials. The polyethylene material with the many advantages has together with aluminum been chosen by most canoe rental companies which started their business in the 21st century. The canoes are seaworthy for two adults and one child up to 6 years old

We have an uneven number of paddlers - what to do ?

The most common question at a Canoe Center is: "How can everyone paddle when we have an uneven number of people? Is it necessary to drop somebody back home?" The answer is no. The salvation is the sea kayak and all hesitations and queries concerning kayaking are explained in the kayak section. Paddling in canoes as planned and simply adding one kayak is an excellent option, and provides a golden opportunity for all in the group to try kayaking. Read about kayaking >>

How to pack our gear ?

Most of the canoe is open and you are recommended to protect your equipment from getting wet. It is recommeded to pack your gear in water-proof bags. Water-proof bags of 50 litre capacities are available for rent. An option is to pack in plastic bags. More about additional equipment >>

Our teenagers are beginning to lose interest in the yearly holiday paddling - What to do ?

"We parents have a strong desire to do the holiday paddling together with our teenagers, but they' re starting to lose the interest. Is there any good trick to use?"

The answer and the advise is easy. The introduction of sea kayaks to the market came as something fresh and created a trend. It is both cool and trendy to kayak. This is something which is very important to teens who are very conscious of what other people think. Besides, kayaking is very fun

With this simple advise, many parents keep their children on paddling vacations throughout the teenage year. Read about kayaking >>
