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.
For the summer of 2022, you can once again rent canoes, paddles and life vests directly from Topsport. The package includes a briefing by a guide, as well as transport to and from Rogen.
Canoeing in Rogen
Paddling in Rogen begins on the protected "Finger Lakes" just north of the natural reserve. From the first lake, "Käringsjön", you can choose a southern route towards Rogenstugan ("Rogen Cabin") or a western route that takes you through several lake systems in the direction of Skedbrostugan ("Skedbro Cabin"). Both options include short "portages" (bits where you'll have to carry your canoe on land).
The paddling route can be infinitely varied. Lake Rogen itself is extensive and requires calm weather to be paddled. Therefore, take plenty of time to explore the beautiful area. You can mix paddling with hiking up to Lake Bredåsjön, or you can hike to the top of Bustvålen and other exciting mountains. See more tour tips below.
It's possible to stay overnight at Rogenstugan and Skedbrostugan. The cabins belong to the Swedish tourist association (STF) and can be booked via their website.

About the Rogen Area
The barren ground is covered with scattered stones and logs with a long history. In many places, the pine forest is between 500 - 1,000 years old and the old dry logs provide a unique nature experience.
Flora and Fauna
Fishing in Rogen and Femundsmarka is well-known, and Rogen has some of the largest hares and trout in Scandinavia. Fishing can be done with fly or reel.
