Enjoy a day filled with adventure that takes you along scenic rivers and lakes in Northern Norway with this mesmerizing canoe trip. This is the ideal excursion for those who love the natural beauty of the arctic wilderness and want a more intimate look at some of Northern Norway's most tranquil locations. 

You'll meet your guide near the Tourist Information office in Bodø to start, but where you dip your canoe into the water will depend on the weather, wind, and water level. During this trip, which will take about 4 to 6 hours, you'll paddle in your canoe along with at least 3 other people. Larger group trips with up to 15 people are also available.

Before you get in your canoe, your guide will give you basic paddling and safety tips to enhance your confidence in the water. You'll be provided with your canoe, life vest, and paddles. All you need to bring is clothing appropriate for the weather and a day pack with some drinks and snacks.

During your journey along the Futelva River or other location, if conditions merit, a certified guide will help you navigate the slow-moving currents and very minor obstructions. They'll show you the best techniques for paddling so that you can improve the control of your canoe. You'll also improve your navigation skills so that you know where you are along the river. 

Under the lush canopy of trees along the Futelva River, you'll have the opportunity to get a close look at some of the most unique fauna and flora in the region. Your guide will also share their knowledge of the native sea trout and migratory char that spawn during certain times of the year. Make sure to bring your camera to create lasting memories of this paradise.

The transportation provided from central Bodø to the river is just a short journey, so you'll have plenty of time to fully immerse yourself in this tranquil waterway north of the Arctic Circle. Due to the low slope of the river, this canoe trip is appropriate for all skill levels as well as children if accompanies by an adult. Trips take place between May and October. Book your canoe trip today by checking your preferred date for availability now.
