For our services we have chosen quality before quantity from day one. And there is a good reason for it.

We are paddlers ourselves, and we love, what we are doing. Working with top quality products and services simply makes our work more fun and our services better. It brings us guests like you, who have a demand for quality and makes them leave from our place as happy customers. This is what makes us smile every day.



‘There is is a red thread in most peoples lives, and mine has always been paddling.

Christian Dietz – Owner Bootshaus

Christian has a background as a racing kayaker, a master’s degree in sports science and has worked all of his business career within the paddling and tourist industry in both Germany and Sweden. When moving the business to Dalsland 2006, Bootshaus became a premium outfitter for canoe and kayak rentals in the region.


To be able to give you as a guest a nature experience with a clear conscience, we work sustainably and environmentally consciously.

In our canoe rental, we give you important information on how you can keep the impact on nature to a minimum during your canoe trip, for example by using the campsites and respecting bird sanctuaries. In our FAQ you will find many tips on how to plan your canoe holiday, what is important when you are in nature, and where you can shop locally during your trip.

We use organic soap and detergent, which is good for you as a guest and for the environment. Our guests have the possibility to sort waste at source.


We are connected to Ållbarhetsklivet (sustainability step), which is Western Sweden’s collective initiative for a sustainable tourist industry. Read more about the initiative here (in Swedish).
