Hedesunda Camping



header picture

Sports fishing attains new heights in the river Nedre Dalälven area, there where the water flows through handsome lakes and many rapids. Hedesunda Camping is found in the middle of this lovely, unspoilt nature right on the beautiful Ön Island. You can fish from the shore or explore the waters in one of our fully equipped fishing boats. We can give you information about the best fishing sites and techniques. Rent one of our comfortable cabins or bring your own caravan.


We are able to communicate with our guests in several languages, including Swedish, English,  German and Dutch.


Hedesunda is open from April 15 to October 31. The best pike season is in the spring from May through June and in autumn from September through November. Pikeperch likes warmer waters from June through October and perch bites from May through November.
