Discover Älmhult from the water
If you’re a water lover, you’ve come to the right place. With hundreds of lakes, Älmhult is a waterborne paradise.
Lake Möckeln even contains the wels catfish, a protected species. There are great opportunities for fishing in lakes and ponds. Gustavsfors, a historical industrial community, is known for its canoeing but game fishing is very popular too. Visit and try your luck at angling after a walk through the historic landscape. Boats can be hired on many of the lakes.
Canoeing along the river Helge å through the varied countryside is a true adventure. Along its banks you will find everything from farmed fields to forests and lakeside landscapes. You’re sure to find your very own perfect spots. Opt for short canoeing trips, or embark on a week-long voyage of discovery. You decide on how big an adventure you want to have!
If you enjoy swimming, there are plenty of places just for you. The biggest is adjoining Sjöstugans camping. Many families prefer to go to Välje where the water is shallow. A long sandy beach is the icing on the cake.
