Group discount - Free canoe & kayak transport for groups
Nordic Discovery’s favorable transport system offers free transport of hired canoes and kayaks to all rivers in Bergslagen, based on a group discount. The discount system also works out very well for paddlers paddling for a long time. The transport is free of charge when the price of hired canoes is higher than the price in the price list below. The price listed below is the minimum price for obtaining the transport service free of charge. When the price of hired canoes is lower than the price in the price list, then the difference between the price list and the price of hired canoes is what you pay for transport service.
Clients book the time when they plan to finish their trip and Nordic Discovery schedules the pick-up of hired equipment for that day and time. As it is difficult to plan where the finishing point is going to be on longer trips, Nordic Discovery is flexible about where the final pick-up point is going to be. Clients confirm the final pick-up point by phone before the agreed time of pick up.
If the logistics work (In case Nordic Discovery will drive the actual road in order to get to or back from the Canoe Center in Kloten), the drivers get a free ride back to the starting point. Transfers for all paddlers are available at an additional cost.
The transport of hired canoes is connected with a discount system which makes the charge of transport smaller when the numbers of canoes is increasing. In addition, becomes the price of transport less per person when the number of paddlers is increasing as more paddlers share the charge of transport. Groups which have the whole canoe transport discounted pay 400 SEK/person and transport day (with 2 paddlers/canoe) regardless of which canoe trail in Bergslagen the group is paddle. In the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve (and along other canoe trails except the 2 transport days) the price is 200 SEK/person and day (with 2 paddlers/canoe).
