Lake Åsnen is known for its stunning scenery and with plenty of room for all kinds of canoeing experiences. The lake is one of southern Sweden's largest lakes of approximately 170 km2 and with over 100 islands.
Many enjoy to paddle shorter or longer trips around the stunning lake Åsnen. Some come back the same day and some spend the night at one of the small primitive camps located at Åsnens spreads. One can easily paddle for a week without seeing the same area! HAVE A GOOD TRIP!
There is good opportunities to spend some days / week on Åsnen. Here you find some
primitive camps / campsites. The cost here is sek 40, - per person to stay overnight.
There shall be approved barbecues with firewood and in some places there are primitive
toilet facilities and access to water! All camps are privately run, so there might be
difference in the standard.
If you want to camp in the wildness it is permitted via "right of public access" in swedish
called "Allemansrätten". Be aware that it does not apply to groups and that between
1/4 - 31/9 it is prohibited with open fire in the area of Åsnen. It is allowed to use grill or
camping stove out in nature.
Be sure to familiarize yourselves with the rules! LINK TO ALLEMANSRÄTTEN>>
Another alternative is to paddle "Värendsleden". This requires transportation to the
starting point located north of the campsite. Most often the starting point is from Åby
and you are sailing down to Torne Camping and ends here. The route is about 70 km and
can usually be done in about 4 days. LINK TO VÄRENDSLEDEN >>
