People at the AKTC center are really helpful and kind towards everyone. I booked quite last-minute and had a lot of questions which were answered really quickly! Even through Facebook. The experience itself was great, we did the Glaskogen tour A, which is a 7...MoreThanks very much for your visit and we wish you a pleasant summer. Best regards from Luc and the team :-)

Glaskogens Naturreservat

Reviewed By bengt_fjallborg - Gothenburg, Sweden

In Sweden, you have a unique opportunity, you can camp for free in any forest as long as you do not litter! Me and my teenage kids went for a camping trip west of glaskogen. We brought some Freshwater, tents, slepping bags etcetera and fishing rods. In three days we did catch 19 pikes with a weight of up to 4.2 kg, off course we did put them all back. We also did caught some big perches 750 gram which we put on the camp fire and had for dinner. We saw moose, eagles and the remains of a moose which probaly had been caught by wolves or died of age. We put the tent next to a small stream with a beautiful scenery. It is all for free, but be careful to put out the fire and do not litter.

This is an interesting museum in delightful and authentic surroundings. Really worth a detour, or better still hire a bike from Arvika and cycle here(30mins) and continue on to the scenic lake racken a few miles north. Really enjoyable experience.

Bergs klatt Nature Reserve

Reviewed By Andreas88888

This is a very nice place to visit for a 3.5 km walk which can be shortened if you want. It goes a long a road with wheel chair access part of the way with plenty of flowers and trees to watch. At the end of road there are bbq waiting for you to fire up (fire wood available). If you continue you will pass old coal burning sites and also several Bronze Age burial sites. The last parts brings you up to bergs Klatt with nice view of the lake. And a jungle tour will bring you back to parking space for the car.
There are several signposts on the route explaining what you see. Also there are signpost on the route in Swedish about how to make you feel well.
Well worth a nice walk in great nature. Highly recommended.

Gylterudsgrottan

Reviewed By Klaus H - Karlstad, Sweden

According to legend the cave entrance the giants castle. Even on a hot day it feels cold near the entrance. It should have 50 meter long cave system (I was not in it). The surroundings are rocky with a small creek you have to cross to get to the cave. It seems like some people stayed overnight, so there is a spot for bonfire.

9. Arvika Konsthantverk

Kyrkogatan 17B, Arvika 671 31, Sweden +46 570 106 33

Arvika konsthantverk was founded in 1922. It is the oldest co-operative handicraft society in Sweden.
