Paddling on smooth water is a unique and serene experience that gives you the opportunity to relax, enjoy the beauty of nature, and experience the natural world entirely at your own pace.

In the municipality of Boden, there are not only two river valleys (Råne and Lule rivers) with completely different characters, but also a large number of lakes to paddle on. In summer, you can also experience the pleasure of paddling silently across the shiny surface under the midnight sun.

The center of Boden is surrounded by water in several places right next to and in the very center of the city. If you are able to leave the city center, there are even more opportunities to experience our waters, with a canoe, kayak or why not a stand up paddleboard?

Here are some tips on good places to explore by canoe/kayak:
