Kayak or SUP along the river Säveån

Ever heard of Amazon-adventures in Sweden? Try paddling along the Amazon-like river Säveån in Gothenburg.

PaddlaGBG offers guided kayak and stand up paddleboard adventures in central Gothenburg. Start off in the small town of Partille, east of the city centre, and paddle your way back to the city on the protected waters of Säveån. You’ll paddle beneath the lush trees surrounding the river and experience a totally different side of Gothenburg. The group will pass industrial areas and nature, and there’s a high chance you’ll see animal life such as beavers, water birds and fish. You don’t need any prior experience to take part in this adventure as you’ll paddle with an experienced guide. Just bring comfy clothes and a camera to document the sights along the way.
