Travel on a timber raft and sleep in a flying tent

Big Timber raft package

A taste of the wilderness and self-guided adventures

Timber rafting with an overnight stay in a flying tent is a classic Scandinavian summer adventure. Bring your family or a group of friends and create wonderful memories.
In this package you get to try timber rafting for two days, including a night in the great outdoors that you’ll spend in a flying tent.
After check-in and a nice dinner at Granö Beckasin, you enjoy your first night in a hotel room, a cabin or a treehouse. The next morning after breakfast you construct the timber log raft. An experienced guide will instruct and assist. You’ll use a specially designed building station, a pile of prepared timber logs and lots of rope. The construction part usually takes 2–3 hours. After lunch in the restaurant it’s time to launch the raft.
The raft is equipped with paddles and a back-up engine. We’ll also give you a laminated map, first aid and safety and rescue equipment, outdoor kitchen equipment and everything you’ll need for your night outdoors.
Once you’re on the river, the raft will glide slowly down stream. You and your group can enjoy the birdlife, a swim, the view of the deep forest and open fields. The birdlife is especially rich along the river.
With the map you navigate easily along the river. After a few hours you reach the spot for your overnight stay. There is a great swimming spot here, a barbeque hut, places to sit and an outhouse. In this basic camp spot you’ll rig your flying tent (or regular tent if you prefer) and cook dinner by the campfire.
The following day you take off again. Once you reach the final destination, you give us a call and then begin to take apart the raft. This takes about an hour. We’ll come and get you and take you back to Granö Beckasin where a well deserved dinner and a bed awaits.
