Rogen's nature reserve is a maze of small and large lakes between long winding ridges surrounded by powerful mountains. Rent a canoe and choose between trips with different levels of difficulty.
Canoing in Rogen
The paddling in the Rogen area begins on the protected "Finger lakes" north of Rogen itself. From the first lake, "Käringsjön", you can choose a southern route down towards Rogenstugan or a western route that takes you through several lake systems in the direction of Skedbrostugan. Both options include shorter portagings.
The paddling route can be infinitely varied. Lake Rogen itself is extensive and requires calm weather to be able to paddle. Therefore, take plenty of time to explore the beautiful area. You can mix paddling with hiking up to the lake Bredåsjön, make a hike to the top of Bustvålen or some other exciting mountain. See more tour tips below.
It´s possible to stay over night at Rogenstugan and Skedbrostugan, that belongs to the Swedish tourist association (STF). (The summer of 2020 you need to pre-book)
