Rent kayaks and explore the waters around Askersund or in the archipelago of Vättern where you can criss-cross among the beautiful islands. Kayaking gives you a wonderful feeling of being united with the water. You can start paddling directly from Askersund. A nice stop is the castle of Stjernsund where you can stop for coffee or lunch. From here you can continue towards Kärraviken in Åmmeberg, or make a tour under the magnificent bridge over Stora Hammarsundet.

It is also nice to take the kayaks to Hjälmaren next to Örebro, or to Tisaren and Sottern in Hallsberg area.
