Canoing by night

Join our peaceful canoe trip down Sävarån and discover the beautiful bright nights in the north of Sweden.  We will meet up at IKSU sport on Friday night at 9 pm and take the bus to Sävar. Before entering the canoes we will introduce the basic instructions for canoeing and then start paddling downstream. Half way down the river, after a few hours in the canoes, there will be a stop for a midnight snack around the campfire. At this time the sun is hopefully starting to rise and the paddling towards our final goal, Skeppsvik, begins. We expect to be back at IKSU around 7 am.
