A one day canoe trip

Paddle on a river and make a stop at a beautiful ruin on an island

Framdelen på en kajak

Try a one-day canoe trip through unspoilt nature. Here you get the chance to paddle both on calmer and more active parts of the canoe trail. Enjoy the calm paddling on the lakes and challenge yourself by paddling through the small rapids of Helge å. Normally you only need to carry your canoe once.

A beautiful place to have a break is the castle island Borgön in the lake Skeingesjön between Osby and Verum. The nature of the island is beautiful with deciduous forest and nice small beaches, where you can land easily. Here are also the remains of an extraordinary octagonal castle dating from the 12th century. The two metre high ring wall is still preserved. On the island you may enjoy a packed lunch by the lake or on the barbecue area.
