Public Access Rights
In Sweden we have a law known as Allemansrätten, or in English it means Every Mans Right. This means that all of us have access to the land and the water of Sweden for camping, hiking and all other recreational activities. However, this comes with the responsibility of taking care of our land so that it can be enjoyed by many generations to come. Here you can find the information you need to practice your right to public access land.

Sweden’s right of public access allows anyone to light a fire out in the nature. But there are restrictions to safeguard Sweden’s beautiful but timber-rich countryside. Read more about cozy campfires and how to play it safe here.
Frequently Asked Questions
How far can I paddle per day?
The average speed of travel in a canoe on still water is about 4km/h, a kayak is slightly faster. This means that you can cover roughly 12km of water in 3-4 hours of paddling depending on the wind.
How many people fit a canoe?
Our Linder 525 canoes are designed to take 400kg of weight, we recommend 2-3 adults per canoe, with space for luggage.
Is drinking water available at Agundaborg Camp & Paddle?
We have taps on site where you can fill your water containers with tap water. All tap water in Sweden is fit for drinking.
What days can I rent a canoe, kayak or SUP-board?
We are open based on pre-bookings before June. Remember to book in advance so you are sure we have free canoes and that we are there to set you up. It is important that you arrive at the agreed time as per your reservation.
Can you shop for food along the canoeing trail?
We recommend that you buy food and beverages prior to your trip as there are no shops nearby once on the water. The Lanthandel in Agunnaryd is 400 meters from Agundaborg Camp & Paddle and you can buy fika, ingredients for your self cooked meals during the trip and all necessities there.
In order to fish in the lakes in and around Agunnaryd a personal fishing licence is required. You can find all information about Fishing in Sweden plus buy this fishing licence online at www.ifiske.se Payment can be one by card or Paypal.
