Travel with a motor home in Kristinehamn

Kristinehamn is a popular stopover for those who travel with a motor home. Below you’ll find recommendations and useful information.

We have five stopovers for motor homes/camp sites. Five companies sell caravans and motor homes and four other companies perform service and repairs. Everything you need can be found here. Wherever you choose to stay you won’t be far from lakes or woods. If you choose to stay close to the city centre you can walk or bike along the board walk to one of the worlds largest Picasso sculptures. You can also take a walk along the trails in the woods (up to 10 km).

Sannaleden is a 6 km long hiking trail between Sannakajen, at the Gästhamn (harbour), and the campsite Kristinehamns herrgårdscamping. In May and June this is especially interesting if you are a bird-watcher. If you want to see some of the old rural and farming areas you can drive to Visnums-Kil and hike a number of trails there (each one is 5 km).

If you want to try another type of wheels you can ride a trolley (start at Konsterud near Nybble).

Do you love to sunbathe and swim? If so you’ve got a lot of options to choose from. Do you prefer smooth rocks or a sandy beach? You can easily reach both with your motor home. Revsand offers a sandy beach with a wonderful view of Lake Vänern, Baggerud has smooth rocks and good fishing right on the lake. Gottbol is a sandy beach by the smaller lake Skagern. Two hideaway spots by the lake are Fyrudden (past the Picasso sculpture) and Kungens rastplats.  

Another nice place that is easily reached on wheels is Gustafsviks herrgårdspark. This is an old manor area with some intact smaller buildings, a large garden, a lot of history and a wonderful view of Varnumsviken, a small bay in Lake Vänern. Summertime there’s a small café. This is also the venue for the food festival "Smaka på Värmland" and the Christmas market. Close by the manor area is the old chapel of Östervik, once built for the employees at the manor. A little further towards Karlstad you’ll find the garden centre Stolpens trädgård and the candle maker Ölmeljus.
