Activity facts

Feel the pulse of Torne River on a river rafting adventure. Journey through calm waters, rough rapids and untouched nature on a river rafting tour. Torne River is one of Sweden’s four national rivers and runs wild — completely untouched.
Torne River rafting is Jukkasjärvi’s most classical tour, which dates back to the 1970s. The tour starts with you putting on a wetsuit, helmet and a lifejacket, followed by a transfer by traditional riverboat to the rafting boats. You head out on a journey downstream on Torne River, the guide instructing you all the way through both calm and rough water.

Along the way you stop on the island Puonojokk where you are served a lunch over open fire, followed by coffee and Swedish Fika. The guide will talk about the rich history of Torne River and you continue further down the river, through rapids and beautiful forests.

Eventually, you stop on the riverbank and pull up the rafting boats before heading back to Icehotel by a minivan.

Your clothing is the most important part in order to be able to enjoy your activity to the fullest. We strongly advise you to dress accordingly to weather since a big part, if not all of the activity is held in an outdoor setting. Our guides have the right to deny anyone dressed wrongly.

Wetsuit, helmet & lifejacket.

Required to bring
Dress in layers. Swimwear, thermal underwear and socks, preferable both in wool. Bring warm, comfortable clothes to change into after the rafting tour.

We don't recommend bringing mobile phones or other valuables due to the risk of getting them wet or even lost. However, if you do bring them, make sure any brought mobile phone is waterproof and firmly attached to you in any way to make it stand against the forces of nature on this true rafting adventure.
