About the Big Bergslag canoe tour:
This is our longest tour and the perfect tour for more experienced outdoor lovers and anyone who likes a proper challenge. The landtransfers during this tour are longer and harder which makes it physically more challenging. 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 or even to take a day to relax around your campsite and read a book.
From the startingpoint in Tyfors you will paddle the first few days trough the beautifull winding Svartälven river. Which gets narrower along the way. After a landtranfser you will paddle from Djuprämmen further up north trough narrow rivers. From Fjällrämmen you go west to the big Naren lake. From there on you paddle southwards over several big lakes and rivers. You will finish your tour at Värmlandsgården. If you want to make the tour a bit more challenging, then you can make an extra loop till Tyngsö. Pay attention: This extra loop has a hard land transfer over 1km where you need to carry your canoe and luggage without the canoe wheels.
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.
