This is an ideal place to get to know the best of Sweden: Forests for hiking and lakes and brooks for swimming and fishing - even boat rides. There is a big chance you will see wild animals such as beaver, not to mention a variety of birds. You might also come across an elk! There are tours organized in the vicinity including wild safaris, float trips and herb collecting tours. Canoes are available for rent. A unique way to explore the area is by “rail bike”: you cycle on abandoned railway lines, across bridges and through old tunnels. There are lots of mines in the vicinity as well. You can also visit “Herrgårdens” (farm) or a wide range of museums like the Alfred Nobel Museum in Karlskoga or the Lesjöfornmuseum. If you are looking for something a bit different, you can go to Karlstad. This is a modern university town where you can go shopping or enjoy a drink at a pub.
