Blekinge is like a single large paddle centre where you can shape your nature experiences yourself. Here you can paddle along the entire coast, in canoe and kayak trails and in the leafy archipelago. There is a network of joints with hubs where you can stay overnight, get help with transport and eat good food. Read more here - ARK56
- along the coast and in the archipelago
Would you like to glide on a mirror-shiny sea or meandering in the middle of the wilderness? Then you should contact the Paddle Company in Järnavik, which offers both. Here you can paddle in lush forests, past lush islands in a living archipelago near wildlife. The Paddle Company has nearly 25 years of experience serving adventurous visitors. Rent canoes, kayaks or take a paddling course, all equipment included. The paddle company is included as a hub in a larger network of trails along with adjacent accommodation and food.
Paddle in the lake
- in canoe routes and lake systems
In Olofström lies Blekinge's largest lake Halen. Here there are great opportunities to experience the wilderness with Halen's camping as a good base with accommodation and food, perfect if you want to enjoy for several days. Right down by the water is Olofströms Kanotcentral with canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and fishing kayaks. Here you can paddle and find adventure, go ashore to spend the night or return home before dusk.
- in exciting wilderness
The lakes Halen, Raslången and Immeln sit together, and there is a canoe route through the lake system. Here you can paddle and set up a route that suits you and your company. All the service, information and equipment you can get from Olofströms Kanotcentral who are professionals on the surroundings and the paddle experience.
If you want to experience the archipelago in a new and different way, you can paddle stand-up. The Blekinge archipelago is made to be experienced from the water with the board as a means of transport, and it is only your own forces that set the boundaries. As you get up, you can easily look out over the views. Equipment for a SUP experience can be found in most places, but one of these is Blekinge Air Kayaks in Ronneby, which specializes in renting inflatable kayaks. You can also use the inflatable kayaks as boards. The kayaks are both sea-safe and durable, and you can easily take them by bike, boat and flight.
If you've tested SUP and got an extra taste for water sports out of the ordinary, try the next trend: Kitesurfing. Here too you stand on board, but unlike SUP you don't have to paddle your way. Here you are powered by a large power dragon that moves you and your board with the help of the wind. Kitesurfing, like SUP, is a young phenomenon in Sweden. Both SUP and kite surfing are perfect for those who want a little more adventurous holiday and at the same time, take the chance to get tips and help from the pros.
