Canoeing, kayaking & boating

The River Veman is the blueish glittering artery that runs through the entire area, to Vemhån and onwards to Lake Svegsjön; it also provides for a long and wonderful leisurely canoeing adventure.

The adventure can start off in Vemdalen Village where you can hire canoes and all the other equipment you may need. You can also book a pickup service after concluding your tour – even when you opt for the multiday paddling all the way down to Sveg. One fine daytrip is from the campground down to Lake Håsjön in Vemhån.

The River Veman is a completely free and unregulated waterway and the character of the trip depends on the season. Early in the summer the current and the water volume are quite inflated, in particular near the campsite but later on the waterway becomes soother. With less water it may be necessary to lift the canoe and carry it past some particularly shallow and rocky sections.

If you prefer a shorter tour you can set off from Vålkojan, running through open landscape in a large serpentine. The small sandbanks invite picnics.

Should you want to explore more open water and find your own private beaches you can rent canoes in Klövsjö and also rowing boats for a pleasant tour in waterways and lakes.
