You start the biking holiday in Karlstad. Hopefully you visited the very well known artist Lars Lerin´s art gallery the day before. Filled with impressions from the exhibition and a good nights sleep you are now ready for todays biking adventure! We will meet up at your accommodation with the bicycle, helmet, road maps and trail description. The backpack is filled with water, coffee and lunch. Now the journey up north begins!
You bike along Klarälven in Karlstad and eventually you reach the old embankment that now is a 90 kilometers long bicycle path, called “Klarälvsbanan”. Enjoy the pace while biking through the nice countryside. Feel the nature with all senses — the wind blowing in your face, the birds singing, the scent from forests and soil. Feel the serenity surrounded by beautiful scenery.
Along the way it´s nice to take a break and stretch your legs. There are many nice resting places along the “Klarälvsbanan”, for example at lake Syrsjön, just south of Deje. A lunchbreak here could be nice. Food taste so much better eating it outside in the nature, don´t you think?
The journey continues to Deje old power station which is now an art gallery. A lot of the old interior is saved and together with the 11 m high ceiling it creates av special atmosphere and setting for the art. Enjoy a coffee at the organic café and maybe a homemade cake!
With renewed energy you sit up on the bike again and roll over the river of Klarälven for the last part of the journey. A nice stay in a cottage or maybe a b&b awaits you.
If you like the biking holiday could be concluded with a train ride on beautiful “Fryksdalsbanan” back to Karlstad.
