A weekend getaway adventure in Västra Götaland, Sweden. Packrafting the rapids of Säveån in the autumn flood and collecting mushrooms in the woods of Alefjäll.
Säveån is an easy accessible river. 30 minutes away from Gothenburg by public transportation and a river guide is online here in Swedish: http://www.bohusvals.se/fg_savean.htm. We paddled the river section between the train stations of Floda and Stenkullen with two major rapids the Kusaforsen (graded 3-4) and the S-kurvan (graded 2-3).
