You cycle through a beautiful landscape on small village roads through the Värmland countryside. On this tour you will experience both the Union Trail and the Väner Trail, two national cycle trails that run through Värmland. The roads are low-traffic and have clear signage so it is easy to find.

If you have the car parked in Borgvik, you can take the boat bus back from Lillängshamnen on Hammarö to Borgvik (with change in Vålberg) lines 97 and 98. The boat bus runs according to schedule Wednesday, Friday and Sunday period 4 July-14 August 2022 and bicycles are welcome on board. It is also possible to book a taxi ride back.

Day 1

Arrival at Kungskvarnen in Borgvik

cycling holiday värmland Roger Borgelid_VisitVarmland Cykel Borgvik-Kvarnen 05_2

Arrival at Kungskvarnen in Borgvik. Here in the land of the heats between Lake Värmeln and Lake Vänern, people have lived since the Bronze Age. Once you have checked into your cozy little room, we recommend a visit to the art gallery Sliperiet before it's time for a three-course dinner in the old rustic mill building. After dinner you can go for a walk through the village and maybe take an evening dip in the lake.

Winding roads, swimming and wonderful nature

After a good night's sleep, enjoy a delicious breakfast in Kungskvarnen's restaurant. Unpack your packed lunches and cycle east on the Union Trail. The surroundings are beautiful and there are plenty of nice places to stop along the way and have lunch with you. A tip is to cycle down to Skutberget or Bomstadbaden for a cooling dip and a coffee. Here are both nice rocks and sandy beach,

In the afternoon you will arrive in Karlstad and the comfortable Elite Stadshotellet which is centrally located. The mighty Klarälven flows through the city and there is much to discover. It can be nice to visit the Vana Spa next to the hotel and relax for a while before dinner.

Hej Cykeupplevelse och konceptet tycker vi var bra Det var rörigt i Borgvik när vi kom för det kändes som om de inte hade koll på vad paketet innehöll och de var fullt upptagna med ett brölopp som också höll oss vakna till midnatt Elite hotel i Karlstad var fullbokatt och vi blev ombokade till River Side och där fick vi ett större rum där vi kunde ta in cyklarna vilket var bra Receptionisten på River side gjorde sitt allra bästa för att reda ut hur vi kunde vara bokade där och hur de skulle fixa med middag Det löste sig men själva tanken med paketet var att vi inte skulle behöva bry oss och nu fick vi dubbelinformera om allt Så vi önskar nästa gång att det kommer att flyta bättre Och vi är nöjd med resan och det är prisvärt tycker vi Så vi återkommer säkert igen H Marc

The stay in Borgvik and Karlstad was fantastic, food and accommodation so good, then it was difficult to follow the Union Trail because it was not on the maps.
