The Klarälven (Clean River) is Sweden’s longest river. In
total it is approximately 460 km long. Of this it runs for
about 300 km inside of Sweden. Before entering Värmland it
emanates from Lake Rogen near Härjedalen and runs through
Lake Femunden in Norway. There it becomes Trysilelva, the
Norwegian name of the river.
The river has, up until 1991, provided much economical
benefits, providing a suitable transport route for log
driving, while in present day featuring internationally
recognised sport fishing waters for salmon and
trout.Klarälven has clean and fresh water, suitable for
bathing, although caution should be taken if bathing, as the
currents can be treacherous.
Between Sysslebäck to Edebäck the river is suitable for
canoeing and kayaking without the necessary of any land
transport (now water energy plants). We provide the
opportunity to do so with our rent-out of expedition
sea-kayaks or Linder / Gatz canoes.
Our starting points are at Sysslebäck, Likenäs, Ambjörby,
Stöllet, Fastnäs and Byn near Ekshärad.
