Packrafting Bergslagen: Rapids

By Deliverance Team on 2015.07.28 In Finished Adventures Places

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).
