Enjoy our waterways

There are many opportunities to enjoy the surroundings by water in the Örebro Region. The county offers some of the most varied canoeing and fishing waters available. You may choose to paddle in Lake Vättern’s beautiful archipelago or to slowly glide down a winding river, with the wilderness your nearest neighbour. There are several different kinds of fishing to choose from, in a great number of fishing waters, from Sweden’s two largest lakes, Lake Vättern and Lake Hjälmaren, to the smaller secluded forest lakes and streams.

Canoeing

Paddle along the winding, narrow rivers in the Bergslagen wilderness or along the plentiful plains of the province of Närke – right into the center of Örebro and its magnificent medieval castle. 

There are five canoeing routes with pre­pared camp grounds with shelters, toilets and fire rings. At Lake Vättern’s archipe­lago, you can paddle a kayak and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the bustling archipelago.

Fishing

Spend a few days in our beautiful nature, fishing with your friends or family. Hire one of our local guides or venture out on your own, enjoying the serene natural surroundings and the incredible variety of sport fishing offered in our region, with pike, perch, zander and a variety of game fish. In the area of Karlskoga and Degerfors, you may pur­chase a fishing license, which includes 70 lakes.
