About the Northern Bergslag canoe tour:
This tour is excellent for canoeists with some experience and anyone who likes a bit of challenge. This tour will take you "of the beaten track". You hardly ever meet other people along the way and there is only little civilisation around. You have the unspoilt nature of Sweden to yourself.
From Värmlandsgården you paddle for a few days in northern direction over several large lakes in the border area of the provinces of Värmland and Dalarna. From Tyngsjö you descend south again over calm rivers and lakes. The tour ends in Sundsjön, about 10 km south-east of Värmlandsgården.
Along the way you will pass many uninhabited islands and riverbanks that are worth exploring and where you can spend the night. With some luck you can spot deer, moose, crane birds or other wild animals during this trip. The 7-day trip is based on an easy paddling pace with plenty of room to swim, fish, light a fire and explore the many uninhabited islands and riverbanks.
