Welcome to Klarälven Kanot!

Canoeing or kayaking on the rivers: Klarälven, Svartälven, the Röjdan or in the "outback" north of Hagfors.

Through Klarälven Kanot we offer you the opportunity to sail the rivers and lakes with our wide selection of Aluminum Canadian open canoes from the Swedish brand Linder in 2-, 3- or 4-person versions or in our 2- or 3-person PE canoes of the brand Discovery Old Town. Klarälven Kanot not only has canoes but also kayaks for renting out. These are the expedition kayaks of the brand Prijon (1-person) or the easy-to-handle 1-person expedition kayaks of the brand Rainbow Oasis X-large.

There is a double seater (2-person) kayak available for the shorter trips. (Maximum 3 or 4 days). This depends on the starting point and the chosen route. No land transports are needed on the Klarälven River, as there are no hydro-electric power stations in the line between Sysslebäck and Edebäck.

The canoe / kayak trips on the Svartälven river or in the "outback" north of Hagfors do require land transport. We have sturdy trolleys of the brand Linder for renting out, which are ideal for transporting your canoe / kayak This canoe area includes parts of Värmland and Dalarna. The pristine "outback". With every trip you will receive a map (or maps) of the area.

A nature card is required for the trip over a part of the Svartälven.  You can purchase this from us. (20 SEK pp. Children under 16 free) You can start your tour on any day of the week. We prefer to bring you to the drop-off around 10
in the morning, but ... everything is possible in consultation ... of course.

You can stay the night before (or at the end) of the tour in cabin “ Annette “. The cabin is accommodated up to 5 people. Or you can stay the night in our fully equipped caravan. (max. 2 adults, 2 kids) A shower / toilet and kitchen has been realized in the basement of the base.

In the early and late season, it is  also possible to spend the night in the base itself. There are beds for 6 people. It is also possible to put up your tent in the garden …The advantage of an overnight stay is, that in the event of rain, your equipment/bagage stay dry and we can still leave without a hitch.

Do you want to pick up the canoe yourself? Or would you prefer us to take you to one of the starting points, so that you can leave your car with us for free? With us, both is possible. Do you want to know more about our tours, just ask!

Welcome to Värmland!

Our tours

A trip of a few hours on a small river .... (in the morning or in the afternoon)

We'll drop you off ... where the river starts. This is a beautiful river, close to the base, surrounded by a beautiful old forest. Lovely and exciting at the same time. A number of trees have fallen over and around and in between you have to maneuver ... not always easy ... The river flows into the Klarälven river. You cross this river diagonally and you end up at a small beach. We’ll pick you up there.

This canoe trip is suitable for the whole family. The Klarälven river is a very old river, which has its origins in Norway...

and which winds its way from north to south through the province of Värmland, where it finally (after about 460 km) flows into Lake Vänern. The river takes large amounts of sand with it. New islands and sandbanks are emerging every year. The river flows quietly through a varied landscape of forests, hills and meadows. Occasionally a village. No land transports are required. The river was used in the old days for the transport of tree trunks. Now the transport is done by large trucks.

Byn - 18 km is a trip for one day. From Byn, the trip is suitable for people, who want to paddle down the river calmly and want to stop here and there for a lunch or for a swim.
