Tips of lake trips

Västvallen

The West (Väst) Grazing Ground (vallen)
Medium

Across the lake Lofssjön and westwards lies Västvallen. You have to paddle in open water, so some know-how is useful especially if it is windy. At Västvallen there is a resting place with windshield and fireplace. Outside the Västvallen shoreline, in clear weather, you can see farmhouse remains on the lake bottom that were abandoned when Lake Lofssjön got a dam at the eastern end.

Kaninön

The Coney (Kanin) Isle (ön)
Very Easy

The Kaninön Isle is located just east of Lofsdalen Camping just a few hundred meters from Karins Sportbod. Rumour has it that the isle is inhabited by Swedish rabbits. It is a just right trip for the younger ones and those who want to try kayaking or canoeing. The lakeshore is never far away and Lofsdalen’s bathing area is just inside the isle if you need a cool off.
