Starting from Borgvik in southern Värmland, you will find inviting bathing places, good food, exciting places, fantastic craftsmanship and beautiful views. This is a varied and inspiring bike package that can also be built on with several nights and other activities.

You sleep in really comfortable beds at Hotel Kungskvarnen in newly renovated twin rooms with their own entrance and garden furniture on the grass outside. Dinners are served in the restaurant, or if the weather permits it, on the veranda. The food is always well cooked with good ingredients. Beef, lamb and game meat come from our own agriculture. Mushrooms and berries from surrounding forests. Welcome to a really wonderful cycling holiday in Värmland.

Day 1

Lake view Vänern

Arrival at Borgvik at lunchtime. Lunch and Check-in at Kungskvarnen.
You start with a bike ride to Liljedal via Kyrkebyn. There you park the bikes for a couple of hours and hike the "Chicken Trail". You can then unpack the coffee basket you bring with you when you sit on the highest peak and enjoy the mile-wide view of Lake Vänern.

Feel free to stop at beautiful Sävsjön on the way back and take a dip before continuing towards Borgvik. Dinner is served in Kungskvarnen's restaurant.

Lunch & coffee basket, dinner
about 38 km (and 5.7 km hiking)
Day 2

Vikingaleden

After breakfast, which is hopefully enjoyed on Kungskvanen's sunny veranda, you steer west. You make the first stop at Värmlands Vikingacenter and the harbor in Nysäter. In Nysäter you will also find a grocery store, garden center and a fantastic curio shop. Then continue towards Långserud. On the way you pass, among other things, Gillberga berries - self-picking of blueberries.

In Långserud you will find, among other things, Esterscafe and Wikfors mill. When you cycle back, you eventually pass Kungshögen by Högsäter (which is one of three burial mounds along the Byälven river that has been designated as the grave of King Olof Trätälja) Then you take the ferry across the river and gravel roads through the forest back to Borgvik. In the evening, a two-course menu awaits at Kungskvarnen's restaurant, which is guaranteed to satisfy your hunger.

If you want to do a shorter day stage, just cycle directly from the Viking Center to Gillberga Bær.

Kungskvarnen hotel and restaurant, Borgvik
Breakfast and dinner
about 59 km (it is possible to shorten the trip to 36 km)
Day 3

Klässbols Linen weaving

Today's excursion destination is Klässbols Linneväveri. In northern Borgvik you take a winding gravel road that leads you to Värmskog. If you have already developed a real appetite, you can stop by the café for a shrimp sandwich. Otherwise you continue towards Klässbol. In addition to the weaving mill, there is also a showroom and an outlet, so leave some space in the bicycle bags.

The road home goes rural along a winding gravel road through forests and up hills. When you are almost in Borgvik again, you will find the water ski club at Holmtjärn. In the evening, you sit down again at a table in Kungskvarnen and eat a well-prepared three-course menu made from local ingredients and with a lot of love.

It is possible to take a slightly shorter trip just to Värmskog and maybe hike the Silver Trail instead.

Kungskvarnen hotel and restaurant, Borgvik
Breakfast and dinner
about 67 km (it is possible to shorten the trip)

We could just as easily have booked accommodation on our own and looked for luck on the map. Unfortunately. Offered accommodation did not meet expectations, but after the upgrade it was perfectly ok. The food is good. The environment / facility as such, pleasant. Service- first impression not good, then - nice but, as I said .... I am disappointed. We had to take care of our own cycling ourselves and we did.
