The canoe trail Jarlean in the Bergslagen region in Sweden

Järleån offers river paddling. A top quality classification which gives the river a high rank. The canoe trail flows at a nice and canoe-friendly pace. Before the beginning of the trail, the river is very spectacular. The dramatic scenery begins in Hammarby and finishes in Järle. A very powerful stretch of rapids with murmuring waterfalls is located here. This river stretch through the nature reserve Järleån is unique and beautiful. The canoe trail begins in the southern part of the nature reserve, where the powerful stretch of rapids ends. The trail ends in Djupviken's small boat harbor, located in the bay north of the place where Järleån flows into the lake, Väringen.

Trackless Excursions

The paddler is a guest in the nature and is required to demonstrate responsibility and care. Not to harm and not to destroy. We have the right to enjoy Swedish nature, but there is also a duty to behave responsibly. The paddler’s only trace should be the whirlpools from the paddles.
