First guests season 2018


The first of May month we open the canoe season 2018. Our first guests were the manager and 3 staff from an organisation we work with this year. We had long talk about security, very long session how to behaver in nature in Nordmarken and handling the canoes.
There are several responsibilities for our costumer and all must understand they are guests in nature and also sometimes on private land. 3 Staff will be in the area permanent rotating to check the folks on tour with our canoes. We have put up strict rules for open fire, handling and give way garbage and other issue to have respect for the area. When the first group arrive we have arrenge a meeting with the chief ranger from DANO canoe area. It’s nice and very good the travel agencies take full responsibilities selling canoe tour. Respect.

Also thank you to Best Western hotel in Årjäng who made a fantastic dinner for us one evening.
