About the Big Bergslag canoe tour:
This is our longest tour and the perfect tour for more experienced canoeists and anyone who likes a proper challenge. During the trip you will pass only little civilization. You can count on a maximum outdoor experience with a lot of variation. You pass through untouched forest areas, paddle over narrow winding rivers, and come across several large lakes with breathtaking views.
From Värmlandsgården you paddle in northern direction over several large lakes in the border area between the provinces of Värmland and Dalarna. From Tyngsjö you descend to the south over quiet rivers and several smaller lakes. From here, the tour makes a trip to the east and follows the slow-flowing, winding Svartälven River for a while. Via Lesjöfors you arrive at the last part of the route, after which you finish the tour in Sundsjön.
The tour takes you past many uninhabited islands and riverbanks where you can set up camp. It is not uncommon that you do not meet other people for days. But with some luck you can spot beavers or other wild animals during this trip. The 10-day trip is based on an average paddling pace with plenty of room to swim, fish, make a fire, grill and explore the many uninhabited islands and riverbanks.
