Vindel River SUP tour

Stand-up paddling is one of the most wholesome and invigorating water sports in the world. We start our tours in flat water (no waves and hopefully no wind).

Then, you learn to balance and other techniques from the ground, allowing you to then take on bigger challenges. When we are entering the water, it may be easier to start at the knees until you feel confident and have found your balance. Once you have mastered the paddle on your knees, raise yourself up and set up parallel to your feet on the board.

1,5-Hour Tour

We gather in Ekorrsele to be equipped with wet suits, life jackets, and helmets and walk down to the paddle boards. Here we learn the basics of still water, and when we feel ready we go in Ekorrstryckan.

This part offers a bit more flowing water and even some fun waves that we can try to surf down on. Plan on getting wet! Then continue our trip down the Ekorrselet before we reach the next stream with more challenges. The tour ends just above Bäckarforsen.

Half-Day Tour

We gather in Ekorrsele or Lycksele to be equipped with wet suits, life jackets, and helmets, then the transport by car to the starting point in Arvsele and scenic Arvån.

Arvån meanders slowly through a scenic landscape down to the Vindel River. Along Arvån are plenty of beavers, moose, and waterfowl, and because we are standing up and moving quietly, the chances of seeing these animals are relatively good.

At Arvåforsen we lift up our boards and carry them past the rapids, but take the opportunity to eat a light lunch. Then we continue our journey downstream where we finish our journey just above the upper Trollrapid. NOTE: Time can vary depending on the water situation!

The half-day tour can also take place in Tannbäcken, just outside Lycksele. A very scenic creek with good chances to see wildlife such as beavers, moose, and wonderful dragonflies.

Items to bring on the tour:

  • Mosquito repellent
  • Something to drink
  • Waterproof camera
