The Lake Bolmen

Our ancestors thought that the lake was so big that they gave it the name ”Bolm” which is the ancient name for “big”. With its 184 square kilometers Bolmen is one of the ten biggest lakes of Sweden.

It is possible to sail on the lake and you can canoe around hundreds of islands and explore the unique archipelagos in a way you normally only can do along the coasts. In the clean water of Bolmen, also providing drinking water to large parts of south Sweden through a tunnel is it possible to swim and catch fish from the sand shores or beach cliffs.
