This means that wood is available at the rest areas. You can also buy firewood at the time of delivery. 1 bag costs only 25 SEK.

The fee is currently 50 SEK per canoe or kayak and night and the proceeds go in full to maintenance of the rest areas.

An inspection officer is employed to inform paddlers in the lake system about the applicable rules, check that the rest areas are in good condition and make sure that paddlers who overnight in the system pay the service fee

The service fee is paid at Halens Kanotcentral or Turistbyrån in Kommunhuset Östra storgatan 5 and Immelns Kanotcenter.

Allemansrätten

Detta är grundregeln i den svenska allemansrätten som du här kan läsa valda delar ur. För mer detaljerad information hänvisar vi till www.naturvardsverket.se.


Du får ta dig fram till fots, cykla, och rida i naturen, men privat tomt, plantering och brukad mark är förbjudna områden. Glöm inte att stänga grindar efter dig.

Tält
Du får tälta med ett tält ett dygn. För att tälta längre tid, i närheten av hus eller med flera tält bör man fråga markägaren om lov.

På vattnet
Du får åka båt, ligga tillfälligt förtöjd, gå iland och bada vid stränderna, utom i närheten av boningshus. Observera att det finns fågelskyddsområden och andra områden där det är förbjudet att vistas.

Fiske
Du får fiska fritt med spö och vissa andra handredskap utmed kusterna och i våra fem största sjöar. I övriga vatten krävs tillstånd. Det fria fisket omfattar inte nätfiske, angelfiske, trolling och dragrodd.

Hund och jakt
Lämna djurens bon och ungar ifred. Att skada eller ofreda djur är förbjudet. Av hänsyn till det känsliga djurlivet får hundar inte löpa lösa i naturen tiden 1 mars – 20 augusti. Även annan tid måste hunden hållas under noggrann uppsikt i naturen. I friluftsområden och på öar i skärgården råder ofta kopplingstvång.

Eld
På sommaren är det ofta eldningsförbud. Då är all öppen eld förbjuden – även vid iordninggjorda eldplatser. Annars är det tillåtet att göra upp eld under största försiktighet. Släck noga! Elda aldrig direkt på berget! Det spricker sönder med fula sår som aldrig läker.

Bär, svamp och annat
Du får plocka vilda bär och svamp, och blommor som inte är fridlysta. Det är dock förbjudet att utan tillåtelse hugga ner träd eller buskar, bryta grenar eller kvistar, ta näver eller på annat sätt skada växande träd.

Ta med skräpet!
All nedskräpning utomhus är förbjuden. Krossat glas, burkar, plast, fiskelinor och annat skräp kan skada både människor och djur.

Lagskyddad natur
Det här är symbolen för lagskyddad natur som nationalparker och naturreservat. Där gäller vanligen särskilda föreskrifter som kan inskränka allemansrätten.

I både naturreservat Halen och naturreservat Pieboda är det enligt föreskrifterna inte tillåtet att göra upp eld annat än på särskilt iordningställd eldstad. Det är inte heller tillåtet att skada eller elda död ved man finner i naturen.

Drive

Collective (Train & Bus)

We are well connected if you choose to travel by train / bus from Copenhagen / Malmö. Take the Öresund trains to Bromölla where bus 561 to Olofström is waiting at the railway station. The
bus timetable is adapted to the arrival times of the trains.

If you come from elsewhere in the country, change in Hässleholm to öresundstågen and hop off in Bromölla.

In Olofström you hop off at the stop Nebbebodagården at the entrance to Olofström. From here it is about 900 m to the canoe centre via a walk and bike path that is marked Blekingeled-Skåneled until Kanotcentralen.

Travel time Malmö-Olofström: about 2 hours 5 min.

Then go back by bus 561 to the stop Nebbebodagården, or walk there along Idrottsvägen south to you reach the stop at the roundabout on road 116.)

Car

When you arrive at Olofström by car / Mc on highway 15 there is directions until Kanotcentralen on Strandvägen 14

Transporter

Normally you paddle in Halen and Raslången and borrow a canoe cart for transport between the lakes. We can help you with the transport of canoes / kayaks for an additional fee and you have opportunities to start or finish at another location in the lake system.


Booking of transport is made before booking a canoe/kayak to the booking office Tel. 0454-40 280. To take passengers, a special contract must be made.


Customers of canoe transport must be on site at the scheduled time and help the driver with loading and unloading the canoes. If you are not in place at a certain time and we need to get help loading/unloading the canoes, you will be charged extra.
