I have lost my dreams !

There are many different way of canoeing and outdoor life. Lots of our guests come from high concentrated area with a lot of people in large cities. Bad air, polluted water in the lakes and streams and stress with a lot of other people close together.
If you go on a canoe tour you set your own speed, drink the water direct from the lake, and take a break when you want or hit shore to overnight in solitude nature. This is the way it should be I Nordmarken, Värmland, Sweden. It has been this, since I started as a canoe outfitter 1956. But now large German companies are sending 2-4 buses with canoers to one part of the area Nordmarken in Värmland, Sweden every week during the whole summer.
We who live here, have our business near the shore, know the area well, know all the good places and have a good relation to mostly of the landowners, is a bit a shame of this new invasion. Hundreds of people come to the area on a small spot and 100-300 people are going back to Germany at the same time. All are mostly in the same lake Foxen, on the island and camp sites. It´s difficult to fine remote areas and enjoy the solitude and the thing our guests want on a canoe tour.

But we do have a 100% knowhow about the area and lived here for more 55 years and can show you places where you can be alone and have a good time away from crowded lakes. We don’t see the profit in EURO´s, we want our guests to have a good time and come back year after year and find the good spots, we show them and give them what they have paid for, not to stand hours waiting to get on tour on a crowded lake.
