Beaver safari and SUP tours

Beaver safari on paddle boards

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. The tour starts at 18.00 and because we have 24-hours of daylight in this area it will be a wonderful evening.

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. We paddle upstreams the creek and stop half-way for a picnic before we turn around and go downstreams again.

The season 2021 we saw beavers on all our tours except one when we saw moose instead.

The beaver safari 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

 

1,5-Hour 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.

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.
