River Floating - the timber log way

Experience river drifting along the historic river log driving path on Piteå river

You dress up in dry suite and snorkeling gear, and immerse yourself  in the slow stream of the Piteå River. By just floating on the surface you will slowly drift of with the river as a timber log from the old log driving era.

You are now in the world of the river fishers where the old pike can lure and watch you from a hide, water plants oscillate rhythmically in the river current and perches take of when youslowly come floating across their stand. Also salmon and trout thrive in the river and may be seen.
Without any effort you float with the river, passing fishes, beavers lodged in the river banks, and if you are lucky you may meet the otter living in the small creeks of the river. 
The Piteå river has a long history of log driving that ended some 30 years ago. You will see remains of the log driving epoch with drowned logs, and remains of log driving constructions aloong the river banks.
After this immersion in the river world, you walk up a river bank and enjoy hot drinks and river snacks at an open fire.
