A real Swedish outdoor experience
Canoeing and kayaking in the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve. Join to see beavers swimming along winding rivers. Watch the majestic moose walking through the deep forest. Experience the gatherings around campfires and find the peace of nature in the Swedish wilderness.
High hills and deep valleys surround a long stretch of excellent paddling water with steep cliffs descending dramatically into the river along narrow stretches. The wilderness is located on top of a higher plateau and the wildlife is rich. Along the canoe trails are a great number of rest areas with sturdy rain and wind shelters. At the rest areas there are good, strong fireplaces in front of each rain and wind shelter. What makes the area unique? The forest has been protected from development since 1950, when the wilderness become a nature reserve which is the reason why the forest has been left in peace and why the wilderness still is a popular retreat for many wild animals.
