Step on to a ferry

that takes you out on Lake Vänern and aim for an island. Dip your feet in the water, explore, bathe, pitch a tent and have a barbeque: you’ll have fun, whatever your age. Discover the beautiful environment surrounded by clean, clear water that is drinkable straight from the lake. You can also take the ferry to Karlstad, to go shopping, visit museums and have fun. The train, bus and ferry all bring you back to Kristinehamn. Or get off at the stop on Hammarö, and take a walk around Lövnäs, a pretty area of cultural interest, and then take the ferry back. We can recommend the ferry whatever the weather: if it’s fine then you can visit the small islands, where you can swim and walk or, if it’s raining, you can explore the town.
