11 Family Friendly Adventures

A cultural journey to the landscape of the storyteller. We have collected selected tourist destinations making it easy to experience our Värmland – a province largely characterised by tradition, history and culture. We go so far as to say that there is something here for everyone.

1. Delightful water fun

If you are looking for fast-paced water activities for the whole family, Sunne Camping & Sommarland is the place for you.  Here you will find activities for both daredevils and the more cautious.

2. Exercise, play & relax

Three pools, water slides, a gym and a pleasant relaxation area. Have fun, work out and indulge at Sundstabadet in Karlstad.

3. Animals, nature and a walk among trolls

Karlstad’s public park Mariebergsskogen is full of activities. The beautiful Naturum visitor centre, troll walks, train tours, games and minigolf mixed with the small Lillskogen zoo.

4. Meet the king of the forest

Give your family a memory for life at Värmlands Moose Park.  Take a guided tour into the moose enclosure and come up close to these stately animals.

5. Peace and quiet

Värmlands Sjö- & Fjällcamping, just north of Torsby, is perfect for families seeking peace and quiet in a magical setting. But the surrounding area also has good opportunities for summer and winter activities.

6. Who is the canniest?

Head to Boda Borg in Karlskoga for head-scratching adventures and brain teasers.  There are more than 100 different rooms with challenges of varying degrees of difficulty.  Wear rugged clothes and good shoes.

The beach by Bomstadbaden, just west of Karlstad’s city center, is known as Värmland’s Riviera. Choose between lots of activities or just relax on the beach.

9. Cowboy for a day

Experience the forests around Ekshärad on horseback. At Our Little Farm you can join horse riding and wagon tours through the woods and fields throughout the year.

10. Views and experiences

Lake Fryken serves as both entertainment and scenery at Frykenbadens Camping.  Have a sauna or rent bikes – or why not book a fishing or golf package?
