The Swedish countryside opens up for you along the way on your raft showing one of its more beautiful sides with lush vegetation and inviting fresh, wonderful aromas. “Vildmark in Värmland” based in Torsby is one company that organizes raft trips.
Other ways of transporting yourself around beautiful Värmland, include by canoe, horse, bike or maybe even by rail trolley. The landscape gives you the chance of seeing exciting beasts of prey and other unusual animals like moose, some of which are white in color.
Make sure you travel up to one of Värmland’s vantage points and get a breathtakingly beautiful view of the countryside. A magnificent and grandiose view of the area awaits those who visit the heights of Tossebergsklätten, which is featured in many stories. The wonders of nature and the barren wilderness are never far away in Värmland.
But there is also a lot more to see and experience. In many places you can visit beautiful farmsteads from different eras and absorb historical cultural reminders from when burn beating took place, and when Finnish people populated the area. These experiences are often combined with the chance to sample delicacies that were typical of the period.
Many old Finnish farmsteads serve their visitors with “fist” porridge and pork or smoked pork pancakes.
In Värmland you have many opportunities of seeing genuine fine craftsmanship along with a variety of exhibitions covering many areas. If you enjoy fishing there are a large number of lakes and waterways, and a wide range of fishing possibilities to choose from in the fresh, clear waters.
Värmland has much, much more to offer and every curious visitor receives a warm welcome here.
