Why paddle the Norrhavet route?

You can use your knowledge and the conditions set by Norrhavet and the wild to your advantage in an adventurous spirit, yet safely in the protection of a group.

This adventure is for experienced paddlers. You have to be able to handle the open waters and the breaking waves of the North Sea. You could say that the only thing protecting you from the north wind is the Umeå church tower — just joking.

If you decide to take up the challenge, however, a feeling of freedom awaits you, although in the clutches of nature and surrounded by magnificent landscape: the skyline, the untouched islands and rich animal world.
