Our canoe tours


Individual Canoe & Kayak tours

from May until September!


We can offer you some of Swedens most diverse canoe waters. Our canoe & kayak rental is located in Hällefors, next to the 125 km-long Svartälven river. From here you can paddle on the north and south part of this magnificent river with fantastic opportunities to discover Sweden's beautiful wilderness. Even do we have lake tours, west and east of the Svartälven but all connected to this extensive system.

By canoe, you can stay overnight at your own campfire on a river bank, or on sites with overnight shelters. We specialise in canoe and kayak expeditions in the Svartälven region from 1-21 days and recommend a longer expedition or a combination of them. Our tours are very suitable for both swimming and fishing, as well as (from ca. mid July) berry- and mushroom picking. Go down the Svartälven river, with the beautiful 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.
