Klarälven is one of Sweden’s classic paddling rivers, running through beautiful countryside in the north of Värmland. The Klarälvdalen Challenge offers paddlers the opportunity to test themselves over a substantial section of this great river.

At normal water levels, Klarälven flows at around 2 – 2.5kms/hour and the Challenge course goes with the flow.

There are no natural obstacles in the river but to ensure paddlers safety and reduce the risk of injury, 3 compulsory check points are included. Paddlers must get out their canoe or kayak to check in approximately 100 meters from the river.

The event is open to single and double seat canoes and kayaks with cash prizes for all classes. The event is open to all types of kayak.

Buoyancy vests must be worn by all participants. Minimum age for entry is 18 years old.

KLARÄLVDALEN EVENT GROUP

The Challenge is being organized by a Klarälvdalen Event Group. The Group is made up of a number of local businesses and individuals whose aim is to invite paddlers with their friends and families to this beautiful part of Sweden. Our plan was that the 2014 Challenge will be the first of many such events in the coming years.

We look forward to welcoming you all 2017!
