— Paddling with Family —
Most kids loves water. Being on the water, playing with it and swimming in it. To go paddling is an exciting experience - but we know, it can be a lot to handle as a parent. On our Family-tour all equipment is included and you'll get an introduction on how to steer the canoe. We paddle for a while, look at waterlilies, talking a bit about the water spirit Näcken and then we'll hit an island. While the guide makes lunch over the fire, the whole family gets a rest, to go swimming, exploring the island, or maybe go fishing?

And if we want to go fishing? You need to bring your own fishing-gear and get a fishing-permit - you can get one at Camping Tiveden. Usually a fishing-permit for children and youth (until 14) is for free, but they still need to get one and bring it!

No problem! Simply let us know in the Message-section at the booking channel or send us a message.
We've never paddled before, can we still go? Yes, you can! No previous experience of canoeing is required for this tour. In order to join us out, you have to wear your life jacket when we're paddling. All personal properties are brought at your own risk.
But what if it's bad weather?
We always put the safety of our participants first, if there's thunder or hard wind, we find alternative activities - like hiking in the woods, making a wild campfire or similar. Often the rain pass away pretty fast. If it's raining we'll put up a tarp next to the fire as a cosy shelter. And last but not least - please remember, the Swedish woods are seldom so sparkling and colorful as when touched by summer-rain.
