Kayaking in the West of Sweden

We have guided tours in Karlstad (city tours) and Håvilsrud, a couple of 100 meters from the Norwegian border north of Charlottenberg in the west of Sweden. We can also arrange paddling in other beautiful areas on both sides of the border. Click on the menu item Kayak Tours above to see some suggestions or Booking Calender to see where we are on a certain date.

All paddling takes Place on calm Waters in very stable kayaks. You should always book in advance just in case, even for short day trips on your own, to make sure people and equipment are in the right Place. It doesn’t have to be much in advance, we can normally arrange things with short notice.

Kayak Rentals

We can offer a variety of different tours, ranging from daytrips (with or without guide) to a full week. Choose a package with just kayaking or combine paddling and hiking or cycling. Or you might just want to rent a kayak for the day and explore the surroundings on your own. Click on Kayak Tours above to see what we have to offer or Calendar to see dates.

Kayaks for sale

Would you like to have a kayak of your own? We sell both new and used kayaks from Melker, ORU and Point65. Click on Buy kayak above for more information.

Bicycle Rentals

We also have a few mountain bikes for rent. You get a map and we’ll suggest Where you can go. Or why not combine paddle and pedal. Cycle to Mitandersfors and spend the night in a tent there. The next day, we deliver kayaks to the waterfront and take the bikes with us back.

More than paddle and pedal

Backwater is part of the Eda Outdoor project, where several nature tourism companies in the Eda have joined forces for a wider selection of activities in the ares. See for more information.
