Sunne is beautifully situated between two of the long narrow Frykensjöerne. We are located in western Värmland and are in Selma Lagerlöfs country. Several of her works take place in the regions around Sunne, as well as Göran Tunström's novels such as the Christmas Oratory. The magnificent landscape, with deep forests and heights rising in the distance over shiny lakes, not only inspires writers - as visitors you feel calm and present in the present.

Selma Lagerlöf has been named for the hotel Selma Spa where you currently stay in Sunne. With a focus on wellness, we offer relaxation, exercise, treatments, good food and drink; a holistic approach you call Lactic Acid & Champagne. The food at Selma Spa is cooked with ingredients of the highest quality, it is nutritious and, not least, very good. Sunne is proud of its cycling. Here are many nice little roads, both asphalt and gravel. Apart from highway 45, there is not much traffic on the roads. And for those who want to explore Värmland's forests even more closely, a mountain bike trail starts just outside the entrance to Selma Spa.

The range is not adapted for children under 16, but during the school holidays we open up with lots of fun for the kids! 

Day 1

Cycle around Lake Rottnen

Selma Spa bike2

Go out and discover the beautiful surroundings. We recommend a bike ride around Lake Rottnen, which gives you a concentrate of the warm countryside landscape. The 55 km long tour takes you past idyllic small farms in the cultivated landscape along the lake, here are resting places and nice bathing places. You also pass through forest areas, such as the Gettjärnsklätten Nature Reserve. If you take the hiking trail to the top you will be rewarded with a wonderful view. The bedrock of the Gettjärn plain consists of hyperite, a dark and chalky bedrock. It has given the garment a special profile - in the east a long slope and in the west a very cross steep. The bedrock means that vegetation is abundant, which benefits insects and wildlife.

At the northern end of Rottnen you reach the village of Gräsmark with a shop and swimming area at Lillsjön. Take the opportunity to take a stroll past Gräsmark's hometown, with buildings and collections from different eras of the village's history. From the time when Finns immigrated here in the 17th century, the so-called smokehouse has been preserved with an additional Swedish cottage. In Asphagsstugan you can see how a big farmer lived in the 1830's. Hembygdsgården is open during the summer and has a serving, on Fridays you cook the traditional warmland fries.

Step back home and look forward to a nice relaxation in Selma Spa's large spa area, with pools inside and out, several different variants at the sauna, gym and exercise classes that are included for you as a guest. Treat yourself to a relaxing treatment. Then you settle down in Restaurant Taste with great views of Fryken and let yourself taste a 3-course dinner, focusing on local and seasonal ingredients.

Day 2

Selma Lagerlöfs Mårbacka or Rottneros Park

Selma Spa

After a good night's sleep, the organic breakfast buffet is waiting for you. Spend the morning for a bike ride down to the center of Sunne, where you enjoy the tranquil location by the water, botanizing in small charming shops and cafes. Selma Lagerlöfs Manor Mårbacka is located one mile southeast of Sunne, here you can follow a guided tour and have a coffee in the café.

Other nice sights in Sunne and the surrounding area are Rottneros Park, which is the farm Ekeby in Gösta Berling's saga. The Tribe of Remembrance was erected as a symbol of the Finnish immigration to Värmland and of the Warmland emigration to the United States. In Sunne there is one of Sweden's largest water parks for the play and bath stove. Nice golf courses are in the area and if you want to try something a little more unusual, then head to the ski tunnel in Torsby where you can go cross-country skiing in the middle of summer.

Selma Spa in Sunne was very accommodating and good. Therefore, the entire booking process is / was very unclear and associated with some surprises. It is unclear what Sweden by bike adds. Nor can we determine what the actual "offer" for Coop members is. Difficult to understand prices etc. Selma was fine but Sweden by Bike is a question mark unfortunately.
