Svartälven North / Beaver tour | Tyfors - Hällefors

A beautiful tour through the wilderness we recommend for anyone.
This expedition starts with a transfer to the starting point in Tyfors. You start of by paddling on the calm river with relatively narrow waters and smaller lakes towards Älvsjöhyttan. Here the river winds through beautiful wilderness where you can spot birds and beavers, and if you are lucky a moose. Following this, you will have option of paddling towards the west, on the narrow Tvärälven river. After crossing a few lakes, you will end up in the small town of Lesjöfors, where you have the opportunity to buy groceries.
Unquestionably, you will find good places for bathing and fishing, perfect nature camps with shelters and fireplaces, or your own nice spot in the forest, on a beach or on your 'own' island. After Silvergruvan, the river gets narrower again densely surrounded by forest, before you end your tour in Hällefors. In the briefing, before the start of your tour, we will provide some extra possibilities for extensions for the tour.
The perfect tour for beginners and families!
