Jösse River (Red line)
Jösse river flow source is Lake Varaldssjöens southeastern end up in western Värmland Finn Forests. The area is filled with traces of the old Finn culture that can be seen even today. At Mitander Fors river will then make a turn into Norway and will return to Sweden at Håvilsrud. Then it continues down through Gunnarskog, to finally run out into Glafsfjorden at Jössefors. The farther south you go, the more buildings you see. At the end of the trail are the two largest lakes. Possibility of resupplying along the trail. The tour can be canceled earlier this instance Gunnarskog or Jössefors.
The trail is suitable for tours all summer and can be combined with the Kola River and Glaskogen. Josse River is suitable for both single or tvåveckorstur and classified as moderate.
