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.
The tour starts in Sundsjön, about 10 km south-east of Värmlandsgården. From Sundsjön you paddle a few days in northern direction over calm rivers and lakes in the border area of the provinces of Värmland and Dalarna. From Fjällrämmen you descend west to the big Naren lake and then you are heading down to the south across several big lakes and rivers. The tour ends 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.
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.
