Our canoe routes


Individual Canoe & Kayak tours

 Fantastic opportunities to discover the beautiful Swedish nature


We can offer you some of Swedens most diverse canoe waters. Our canoe & kayak rental is located in Hällefors, just next to the 125 km-long Svartälven river. You can paddle north, south, west and east of us, as all is connected to the extensive system of small rivers and alternating lakes of this magnificent area, with fantastic opportunities to discover the beautiful Swedish nature and wilderness. 

By canoe and kayak, you can stay overnight at your own campfire on a river bank, island or beach, or on campsites with shelter. We specialise in canoe and kayak expeditions in the Svartälven region up to 21 days. Our tours are very suitable for both swimming and fishing, as well as (from ca. mid July) berry- and mushroom picking. Just enjoy to paddle down the Svartälven river and lakes, with the beautiful nature and wilderness as your neighbour!

If you find it difficult to choose your tour, you can ask us for help, or arrive a little earlier and choose the tour on site. And, as many others have already done, you probably will come back for another tour.
