Most people enjoy paddling and not many special equipment is needed. Life jackets and a map are included when you rent a canoe or kayak from us.

Our “house lake”, Ödevaten, is calm and scenic, you will always be close to shore. We recommended you to start at the north shore and paddle at your own pace to the lake’s south-west dock, Buggehult. There you will find a nice swimming and barbecue area, you can take a pause before paddling back.

The trip is about 10 km and takes around 2.5 hours.

For those who want a longer trip and a little bigger challenge, we offer paddle trips together with our colleagues at Lyckebyån. More information at (in Swedish)
