Karlstad Getaway

by Alvik Online Now Sep 28, 2004 at 6:40 AM

HI! One of my friends, a young Malaysian who moved to Karlstad recently is keen on taking her husband away on a reasonbly cheap and romantic holiday not too far away. I don't think they have a car. Maybe somewhere near the Lake Vannern, small cottages for rent or a boat trip. Any suggestions?

    Hm...I was thinking of somewhere like the famous aqueduct in Håverud but there are no boats there out of season... Maybe Kristinehamn with the Vänern archipelago and Picasso art: kristinehamn.se/forvaltninga... Sunne is another nice place with countryside views, althugh you're more in need of a car there: http://turist.sunne.se/e/ Finally, just to the south of Karlstad is the province of Dalsland, with for instance scenic (but quiet) Dals Ed. Check the entire region's tourist board: vastsverige.com/vtstartpage....
