The Emån is one of Sweden’s largest rivers and offers calm, beautiful stretches as well as wild rapids to paddle in. This river has something for everyone, whether you’re a beginner or more experienced. Besides Emån, Högsby offers paddling opportunities in a number of lakes and other running water courses.
You launch your canoe near the Ryningsnäs bridge. At the Blankan power station, if you want to press on towards Högsby, you need to lift it out, carry it down and relaunch it below the power station. You continue towards Åsebo, where you lift your canoe out by the bridge. Most of the stretch has embankments. The Emån then runs on through Mönsterås Municipality.
A refurbishing of the rest areas along Emån’s canoeing stretch was carried out in 2012.
