When you step into a canoe, you step into the world of adventure. You can never be sure if the canoe will capsize and what kinds of hazards the sea will bring. There is solo canoeing as well as canoeing for pairs and foursomes. And there are many different things that you can do within the sport: slalom, travel with a single or double-blade paddle, freestyle, wave-ski, out-rigger, canoe polo et c. The number one rule is that you have to go through the safety procedures for dealing with emergencies, and always wear a life jacket and crash helmet. Canoeing is an Olympic sport and The Swedish Canoeing Federation can give you all kinds of advice.
A castle full of activity, Sparreholm is an ideal weekend getaway visit for the family with its charming lakeside setting, rich history, interesting museums and even an equestrian center! It is a popular attraction in the summer when the horse training center sees many visitors in dressage for training alongside many well known equestrians. The equine center is available for rent and horse shows are put on here as well. An automobile museum with vintage cars on display is located here, along with a jukebox, bicycle, telephone and trolley museum. The castle and its rooms are leased out on rent for private functions such as weddings, parties and conferences.
