Surroundings & Sightseeing
The region is known for the Dalsland canal and the natural reserve Glaskogen where you can take endless canoeing trips. Furthermore, it offers 300 km of sign-posted hiking tracks. If you keep an eye out, you can surely see elks, beavers, small snakes and other "locals". Highly recommended for nature lovers!
The campsite has canoes, pedal boats and a motorboat to rent out so you don't have to go far for a ride on the water and to fish. Would you like guided fishing with professional equipment? Please let us know. .
Within walking distance of the campsite are bunkers from the 2nd World War. These were built in 1940 and have been in use until the eighties as a training facillity for the army. Check out the photos by clicking on the link below..
There is an 18-hole golf course close by. It is one of the finest and largest in Värmland and is a challenge for the professional and the starter aswell. .
In cooperation with the surrounding communities, Årjäng organises an activity program called "Children border country". They offer all kinds of activities for the whole family in Sweden or just across the border in Norway; cultural and sporting indoor and outdoor activities on the water and in the area. You'll definitely find something you like!
We also recommend a visit to the horse museum. At this museum is a paddock where they often organise competitions and you can take a bet!n gokje kunt wagen.
In Bengtsfors you can take a nice walk to Gammelgården, where you can see how people lived here in the old days.
Or how about a shopping trip to Karlstad or a cultural visit to Oslo (120 km), visit the Viking museum or moosepark?
And many, many more.......
