Experience the canoe routes in Glaskogen

The canoe routes in Glaskogen wilderness are an experience, and can be anything from shorter tours to somewhat longer ones with overnight stays. The strikingly beautiful nature and the clean lakes are an impressive feature on each tour.

You can stay the night at a wind shelter or in a overnight cabin in the Glaskogena Nature Reserve. If you use our wind shelters, overnight abins or fire wood you need to buy our Glaskogena Conservation Card. All incomes from the cards go straitly back to the Glaskogeen Nature Reserve.

Some suggestions for our most usual round tours in Glaskogen:

  • 2-3 hours, the Buvatten tour, easy, good for beginners
  • 1-2 days, the Övre Gla tour, medium, large lake that can become very windy on short notice
  • 2-3 days, the Stora Gla tour, medium, large lake. The eastern part of the lake is very beautiful
  • 4-5 days, the Lelången tour, medium/difficult, many small lakes, you need to lift the canoe between each lake. The tour can be shortened to three days.
  • To create longer tours, you can combine these with each other or with surrounding lake systems
