Paddlers' paradise

Imagine that you are floting along on the water. You pass a seabird family and it doesn't even notice you. When you kayak, you get close to nature in a way that's not possible with an ordinary boat. Experience Söderhamn from a kayak or canoe. In Söderhamn there are fantastic and varied opportunities for paddling. Here is something for everyone. You can paddle in the open sea, in the archipelago with over 1,200 islands or choose one of the many lakes such as Bergviken and Marmen.

The Söderhamn paddlers have produced a canoe guide and with the help of it we want to entice you and your friends to exciting excursions on fjords, in bays, on seas, on lakes, along rivers and streams. Alluring, yes! But we also want to give you relevant information about where you can start, where you can paddle, where you can camp and not least what you get the chance to experience when you paddle with us.

The tour suggestions try to show the character of each trip; what natural experiences you can expect, what historical and cultural sights you will encounter, even what myths and legends may exist along your tour. We have tried to create a canoe guide that can provide something for everyone; the beginner and the experienced paddler.

In the Söderhamn Paddlers' Canoe Guide, you will find tour suggestions described in text and images as well as accompanying maps of the archipelago, lakes and waterways in Söderhamn.
