We will meet at Norrlands universitetssjukhus bus stop on Saturday morning and take the bus to Bjurholm together. There, we will get into the canoes and paddle down the river. After a day on the water including some stops for lunch and fika, we exit in Agnäs. This is where we will hand back the boats, have dinner and build up our tents for the night.
