Follow on a canoe adventure in one of Lapland’s unknown wilderness areas. A great experience close to nature in one of Sweden’s last forest areas without any roads, Pärlälvens (the Pearl river) Nature Reserve.

Grab a paddle and join us on a canoe adventure in one of Lapland’s unknown wilderness areas.
Pärlälvens (the Pearl river) Nature Reserve is one of Sweden’s last forest areas without any roads. This is an area that not many tourists have found yet, most people travelling here is local people. A wonderful landscape with small mountains rising above the old forest.
All the equipment as tents, food, cookers etc. are transported in our canoes. Every evening we set a camp on the beach near by the lake. When we make shorter hiking tours up in the surroundings we only bring daypacks.
The lake Karats also offers good fishing possibilities, so we can catch both Salmon trout, pike, perch and grayling. This is not an extreme canoe tour nor an extreme fishing tour but a great wilderness experience close to nature.
First and last night is spent at Hotel Akerlund in the center of Jokkmokk.


The tour starts and ends in Jokkmokk
