Boating in Europe?

I'm heading to Sweden for a few months and wondering what the options are for fall boating in Scandanavia and/or western Europe? Anyone got contacts?

define Western Europe... The UK should allow boating whenever you have time. Norway's Norway, but at some point it will probably be too cold. This leaves the Alps, which will also get a case of winter and thus insufficient water. Southwest Germany and Northwest Switzerland, however, might offer a lot of small creeks that part of the year.
Contact the guys at Canadian Canoe Shop in Huningue, France. I don't know 'em well, but from what I understand, they might be a very good address for that part of the world...

Sweden have a lot of good kayaking. The big rivers in the north (Vindelalven, Pitealven, Kalixalven) usually work from may to october. The creeks in the mountains can also be runnable in the fall if there is enough rain.
I live in Sweden and if you want more information you can send me an email.
