This trip, which starts at Vallsnäs camping, takes approx. 4 days. Via the mill Önnekvarn you come to Lake Bolmen. The trip continues south towards Piksborg. The ruins of a medieval castle are here, which in days gone by guarded Lake Bolmens entrance from uninvited guests.
Once there you continue into the beautiful river Bolmsån, where a kilometre long rapid and popular angling area is to be found between the two lakes Kösen and Nöttja. These areas can only be crossed during daytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and only by experienced paddlers. Inexperienced paddlers are advised to avoid the 3-kilometre stretch of rapids and lift the canoe. Canoe trolleys are available to rent. The trip finishes in Traryd but it is possible to continue further, via Markaryd – Laholm all the way to the coast.
