Packrafting Bergslagen: Lakes

By Deliverance Team 2015.07.28 in Finished Adventures

The Svartälven River System

Place: Malmlången, Karlskoga – Lundsfjärden, Grythyttan

Water Flow: 37 m3/s

Date: 16th Juli 2015

Henrik went on a solo tour upstream the water ways of the river system Svartälven. Equiped with a packraft, sail and fishing rod he paddled his way north, through the boreal forest and lakes of Bergslagen. This part of Svartälven is more of a lake system, than a river system. The journey took three days and he passed four lakes along the way; Malmlången, Skärjen, Halvarsnoren and Lundsfjärden.

Without a sail and so many big lakes, this route is not really packraft friendly. Buf if you do own a sail and have the winds blowing in your favour, a packraft might be a very good idea. There are several portages along the route because of dams and a packraft makes them pretty easy to do.

The river can be paddled at any season, accept winter. We  recomend to paddle the river in autumn, when the wide open lake views gives an fantastic show in red and yellow.

If you want to see more about the trip, watch our movie Black River.

Packrafting Bergslagen: Rapids

By Deliverance Team 2015.07.28 in Finished Adventures

White Water Wilderness.

Place: Northern Nittälven, Lilla Nitten – Uvbergsbron

Water Flow: 2,6 m3/s measured near the outflow of Nordtjärnsälven. If you want to paddle, we recommend at least 3 m3/s. Check it at:  http://vattenwebb.smhi.se/hydronu/

Date: 27th of July 2015.

A weekend of heavy rain (40 mm) made it possible to packraft the northern part of Nittälven. The route has many small class1-3 rapids and one waterfall. It is not possible to paddle it with an regular open canoe or kayak. Lightweigh inflates are the only way  to go.

The Deliverance Team announced on the “Packrafting Sweden” forum on Facebook, that the part of the river was raftible during a short period of time. Peter, from the Southern part of Sweden, took the chance to float with us. The route is 11 kilometers and it is a perfect day trip. Lunch halfway at Brattforsen.

If it looks like fun and you want som more detailed information about the route, you can find an old movie here and a detailed guide here (in Swedish).

Black River part two

A solo packrafting trip upstream the waterways in the Swedish boreal forest. The area Bergslagen has a history of mining and exploitation of hydro power. Is there still any wilderness left? Henrik, without the rest of The Deliverance Team, put his packraft into the river to find out.
This is part two out of two.
