With more than 40 rapids, the pristine Vindelälven river ranks amongst the best rafting territories in Europe. The “Höga Kusten” coastal region also has addictive potential. The guided hiking tour leads along the seashore to stupendous granite cliffs and one of the most beautiful picnic areas in the whole of Scandinavia. And during a husky hike you will experience the fabulous nature of northern Sweden with real power at your side.
Their barking alone makes it clear who you’re dealing with: Siberian Huskies. It’s not just in winter that sledge dogs are in their element; they also need lots of exercise in summer. A hike with these powerful animals – which can pull ten times their own weight – is an exhilarating experience; Västerbotten’s breathtaking nature is the perfect backdrop.
On the following day you’ll go rafting. With lots of rapids, the pristine Vindelälven river ranks amongst the best rafting waters in Europe. Equipped with wetsuits, helmets and life jackets, the crystal clear white water is tackled in teams.
To top it all off, there’s the tour to the Skuleskogen National Park. The park is part of the impressive “Höga Kusten” landscape. Its nature sometimes dramatic, sometimes mellow – will get you hooked. A narrow path, which meanders through wonderful pine forests, leads to a hidden promontory. This is the perfect spot for a picnic.
The starting point of the trip is Umeå. With around 126,000 inhabitants – of which 37,000 are students – Umeå is the biggest town in northern Sweden. In the summer months, a fresh northern wind and showers are just as likely as long sunny periods. The average age in Umeå is just 38 years and its cultural and culinary reputation in and outside Scandinavia is – quite rightly – absolutely outstanding.
