Easy-medium tour, water currents at some points and a lift with transport on land. The tour is between 11-17 km depending on whether you choose to paddle into Kungsgårdssjön, a wonderful paddle area characterized as a delta landscape, or not.
The tour starts at the southern end of Lake Bäsingen and if you paddle along the southern points there are plenty of campsites. In Bäsingen there is also a very nice bathing area with wooden piers. Then you paddle through Jugansboforsen, (this used to be a river rapid in the past but now it is just a small stretch of streaming water) and on to the Näs power station where you will lift up the canoes and transport by land to Bysjön.
Next to the Näs power station is a salmon farm where it is possible to make a visit unless it is in the middle of high season. Then you cross the beautiful Bysjön where there are several islands which are part of a natural reserve. Also here there is a nice bathing area.
The journey goes through varied woodland and agricultural landscape with very good fishing where you can find fish like pike, walleye, perch, whitefish, burbot, grayling, eel, tench, whitefish and trout. The tour ends in the northern part of Bysjön where Årängsån has its outlet.
