About the Gustavsfors family canoe tour:
This tour is very easy going and excellent for families with children and beginners. You will pass two large lakes with fantastic views and cross a beautiful winding river. The tour also takes you past several uninhabited islands where you can set up camp. With some luck you can spot deer, crane birds or other wildlife along the way. How fast you go is up to you. The trip is perfectly achievable in 2 days. However, if you want to enjoy the unspoiled nature a little longer, you can also make it 3 days. In both cases, there is plenty of time along the way to swim, fish, make a fire, grill, and explore the uninhabited islands and riverbanks.
From Värmlandsgården you paddle north. The tour ends in Gustavsfors from where you will be brought back to Värmlandsgården. You decide how long you make the trip, 2 or 3 days. When you make the booking, you choose the number of days that suits you best.
