Paddle routes

To travel with canoe or a kayak is maybe the most natural way to experience the summer in Lapland. You paddle away from the mosquitoes, no heavy backpack on your back, many nice and varying tours and no crowds of people as it can be on some hiking routes along the popular hiking trails.

Around Jokkmokk you find paddle waters that suits almost everybody. Week long tours or easier and more easy accessible waters for those who only want to paddle for a few hours.
Here we present 3 different tour suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have ideas about other paddle routes.

Paddle tour at Stor-Skabram lake (Easy and easily accessible)Paddeltur Skabramsjön, Svenska LapplandThe Skabram lake is situated only 3 km west from central Jokkmokk. Suitable for a day tour or for those who only like canoeing for a few hours.
Lapland canoe central is located by the shore of the Skabram lake.


The upper part of Lilla-Lule river (5-7 days)Paddeltur Lilla Luleälven, Svenska LapplandCanoeing and kayaking along the river valley. From the wood lands in the east towards the mountains in the west. This is a weeklong tour for you who like to experience the wilderness of Swedish Lapland.


The Pearl river nature reserve with canoe or kayak (3-14 days)Paddeltur Pärlälvens naturreservat, Svenska LapplandWithout a doubt, this is a true wilderness area. Lake Karats is long and narrow and stretches approx 25 km from east to west. In the east there is flat areas with small islands and islets. In the west the valley gets more narrow and the lake is lined by small mountains.

    I would like to bring my children this summer around June 18 for a 5 day trip in the Pearl River area. We will 3 be in a canoe. My daughter is 7 and my son is 5.

    Even though I understand this is not advisable for most people, my children are good swimmers and I have been on many month-long paddling trips, mostly in Northern Canada.

    I would like to rent the canoe, barrel, and any cooking equipment I might need from you for 5 days. What itinerary do you recommend. We will just travel a few hours by canoe each day because the children will want to explore more on land and fish from the shore. Which city should I fly into…I think it might be easiest to fly into Trondheim internationally. From Trondheim, what are my options to get to you?
