    Canoes in Str��msholms kanal, Hallstahammar, Sweden

    If you'e here you'll have to go canoing on the beautiful Strömsholm canal!
    You can rent canoes at the camping but call first!
    You can choose to paddle as long as you want because the canal/river/lake is 90 km's long! It goes from Strömsholm in Västmanland to Smedjebacken in Dalarna.
    It's really beautiful!

    This as a museum that shows how the water was taken from the canal to supply the forge with water power and how iron was made for export.
    The building was built in 1799.
    One of the four Lancashire hearths has been renovated and and a new waterwheel built so the whole process from pudding pig iron to the final product can be demonstrated.
    Every monday handcrftsmen are working at the forge if you happen to be there on a monday.
    There's more.
    The powerstation was built in 1899 on the opposite side of the water and opearates now as a museum.
