Rent a canoe or kayak

If you do not find what you are looking for among our packages, you can always put one together yourself.

You can download the map of the canoe trail and make you own package. We love to help you to optimally prepare your canoe trip on the river Emån.

Our canoe fleet consists of 24 canoes and 4 kayaks. Mostly Osagian canoes in aluminium, three models are available: 2-person 15 feet, 2-person 17 feet and 3-person 17 feet. All models can accommodate an extra seat. We also have some 15.5 feet Pelican canoes in polyethylene. Those are the only ones we still rent out  downstream of Högsby.

EMventure is using the first aluminium kayaks in Europe. These are very stable open kayaks with a large payload, making them ideal to use for multi-day expeditions.
