We are proud to present the gem Kristinehamn! Stroll along the charming street Trädgårdsgatan that dates back to to the 1600s and enjoy the waters of Lake Vänern. Dotted with thousands of islands and skerries, it is Europe´s largest freshwater archipelago. Here awaits adventure, to tempt both young and old, all year round.
Climb aboard a ferry that takes you from the town centre to the archipelago. You can also try island-hopping, go on the historical vessel Christine af Bro or take the ferry to the nearby town Karlstad. If you are a more active visitor you can walk along the historical Iron Trail (Järnleden), with roots in the 15th century.
Three popular family activities are the Pirate Trip to find Captain One Eye´s treasure, beating the water chute record at the Sannabate public baths and experiencing the thrill of a double go-cart at Värmland´s Go-cart Center.
