Klaralven, Varmland

The River Klarälven flows through the Värmland region in central Sweden. This area is the dream of many canoeists. The area is a canoeing wonderland with beautiful sandy beaches and small islands offering idyllic resting places. Watch for beavers in the water at dusk. There is also a chance that you will see a moose along this river.

Depending on the number of days/kilometers you want to sail, you will be taken upstream by us. You then sail downstream back to our company, which is also the end point of the tour.

The river flows about 3 kilometers per hour on average. This depends on the water level. 

Along the way you will come across a number of villages where you can buy some food and drinks or where you can sit on a terrace.

If you do this trip for several days, you can choose whether you camp in nature or whether you set up your tent at one of the campsites along the river. For people who prefer not to sleep in a tent, there is also the possibility to book a hiker's cabin or stuga at one of these campsites.

The river flows along road 62 for a while. But once you're on the water, you won't be bothered by the noise of this road.

The shortest trip on the Klarälven is that of 1 day and is about 18 kilometers long. The longest trip we offer starts in Syssleback and is approximately 120 kilometers long.

On average you can assume that you sail 4 to 6 kilometers per hour.

 

The river winds forcefully south into the valley and you pass several smaller communities where it is possible to replenish and stock up; Sysslebäck, Likenäs, Ambjörby, Stöllet and Ekshärad. There are many nice sandbars to pull up to and have a picnic or swim. If you want to spend the night, there are campsites with cabins along the way.
