White water rafting with ICEHOTEL is one of the most classic and original water adventures in Europe.
The famous stretch dates back to the 1970s when Jukkasjärvi and ICEHOTEL founder Yngve Bergqvist introduced white water rafting tours in Sweden and Europe.
The Torne River has a nearly 400 year old rafting tradition, as it has always been a necessary means of transportation and delivering goods to villages further north or south along the river banks. Equipped with present-day wet suites and inflatables we experience the rapids of Pauranki – a stretch of Torne River feared by all the old rafting men’s in the past and one of the highlights of the tour. This tour is suitable for everyone, so join an exhilarating adventure and feel the adrenaline spread from your chest, enjoy the magnificent scenery, the powerful rapids and their history. The tour includes a certified rafting guide, equipment, transportation and refreshments during the car journey back to Torne River Adventure Center. The tours are carried out with all the necessary safety procedures and qualified rafting captains who have extensive experience as Torne River rafters and trained according to the standards for rafting and first aid as set out by the Swedish Maritime Administration.
This 4-hour activity available from June – August includes:
- Transfer from ICEHOTEL to the starting point and from the end point back to ICEHOTEL
