Lake Sommen lies in the heart of the Sommen district, on the border between Småland and Östergötland. Lake Sommen is one of the most beautiful and clearest lakes in Sweden and has its own fish species the Sommen char.
There are about 365 bigger and smaller islands in the lake. Lake Sommen is of national interest partly because of its natural resources and the outdoor life it offers, but mostly because of its high water quality.
Experience lake Sommen by swimming, by kayak or by boat. The shores are sandy and shallow, but there are also steep and rocky parts that are very beautiful and magnificent. In the winter you can put on your long-distance ice-skates and go for an expedition between the islands. A dream for an ice-skater!
Lake Sommen is a paradise for all who likes paddling, since it gives opportunities for short evening paddling in the sunset as well as week-long expeditions where you can investigate more of the bays, islands and skerries.
