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.
