Arctic spring ice safari by kayak

Safari hunt for the Arctic spring ice - the easy way

The arctic cold is losing its grip and the warming sun of the coming spring is melting the sea ice. After a security introduction, you enter your kayak in the open water of the Pite River where you meet the firs ice floes.  You paddle out to the sea at Bondöfjärden, where a large polynya has opened in the ice. Here you paddle among small ice bergs, ice floes and channels in the ice. You catch the artic feeling of spring by the melting ice and ice floes.  
 
The first gulls of the spring may great you, and maybe the sea eagle passes over you, or a curios seal watches you. You enjoy a warm drink and snacks sitting in the kayak among the ice floes, listen to the sound of cracking and dripping ice.  An experience you otherwise only can get on Greenland or in the high Arctic

Bright summer-night safari by kayak

Safari hunt for the magic northern bright night

After a paddle introduction you enter your safe and stable kayak at the kayak center at Renöhamn, and glide out on the sea. We start paddling from the sunset into the blue hour, where the emerald blue sky meets the emerald blue sea.  Behind us the sunset sky and its reflection in the sea turns into a cascade of red, purple and pink.
 
The time is approaching midnight but the sun is till shining – you are now in the extended northern sunset that keeps the northern night bright and light. At this latitude, only 200 km from the polar circle, the sun just disappears under the horizon for a few minutes at midnight before the sunrise starts. As the sun approaches the horizon, we turn the kayaks towards the sun and are slowly gliding into the sunset.
 
We stop the kayaks and get immersed in this experience, taking in the subarctic atmosphere of this bright and colorful night. The silence of the northern wilderness, the colors of the sunset and the sea makes a majestic experience.  We are enclosed by the mystery of the bright night and the sounds of Swedish Lapland – the screaming quietness of this wilderness.

River Beaver safari

Explore by canoe the land of the river beavers

In the bright evening, we enter our canoes and slowly drift with the current of the Piteå River, looking for the shy beavers along the river banks. This second-largest rodent in the world, live in small family groups in their “lodge” homes with underwater entrances along the river bank.
 
Between the steep riverbanks, where bank-swallows nest, we can see beaver canals where they transport the harvested branches from their cut trees. As the evening gets darker we may encounter beaver felling a tree or if we get to close to a swimming beaver, we may hear them slapping the water with their broad tail as an alarm call to the other beavers.
 
Before it gets dark, we land on a small river island to rest, take some “river snacks” and listen to the evening sounds of the river and the surrounding forest.

Night sky (Aurora) safari by kayak

Paddle into the dark night and experience the northern sky

After a short transfer from Piteå center, you meet your guide at Renöhamn wharf, 7 km from Piteå center. Here your guide welcomes you, and introduces you to paddling technique, kayak safety and night paddling. You gear up in dry suites, neoprene gloves and socks, warm hats, red identification led laps om your life jackets, and head lamps before you glide out in the black void of the night sea. The stable kayaks let you relax and enjoy the northern night sky while your guide introduces you to the astrophysics and mythology of the night sky with its stars and planets sparkling over you and reflected in the black sea. If the sun has been good to us, you might experience the mystical Northern Lights – Aurora borealis dancing over you. The chance of spotting northern lights is very high in coastal Swedish Lapland, as the sky is often clear over the sea. We slowly paddle to a nearby island where we continue our night sky experience, and enjoy hot drinks and coastal snacks from an open fire.
