Paddling in West Sweden
World class paddling!
Boathouses along the shores, city paddling in Gothenburg, wild canoeing lakes in Dalsland and thousands of granite rocks and islands in Bohuslän. Few places in the world can match the paddling waters in the West of Sweden. It is no accident that scores of foreign canoeists travel to Dalsland
For beginners, the very best way to experience the unique paddling waters in the West of Sweden is in the company of an experienced guide who knows the area like the back of their hand. You improve your technique and find hidden treasures in a safe way.
Paddle independently and find your very own island. To get as much as possible out of your visit, visit the kayaking and canoeing centres for the latest information, safety advice, and the best equipment available.
