Starting on the border of the county of Dalarna in eastern Värmland, the river Svartälven is one of our best canoeing waters. The river runs south through vast areas of outstanding natural beauty. From its starting point, the canoe tour on Svartälven is very varied. In places the river does become very narrow, although after passing into the winding river Tvärälven, the tour continues into a number of smaller lakes. This tour also requires about 10 land crossings and on all but one you can use the canoe wheels. The longest land transport is about 2 km (the 4-day tour just has two land crossings, but neither is long and you can always use the canoe wheels).
As the tour starts and ends at different places, the local transports between start, finish and our canoe centre in Gunnerud are included, but you will paddle on your own. If you didn't arrive by public bus, you will leave your car at our centre during the tour. This canoe tour is very suitable for families. It is even possible to do this tour over two weeks! Experience canoeing at its very best!
