You have got a itinerary and a map. Your mobile phone is prepared with a GPS smartphone app that will help you find the right route. Your backpack is filled with coffee, water and a lunchpackage. Now the journey starts!
The hiking stretches through deep forests, along moors, on forest roads, passing glittering lakes and open landscape. If you are lucky, you might makes a curious fox´s acquaintance — or maybe a moose´s.
You will soon find yourself hiking in a comfortable pace, where you can let go of the everyday life worries. Nature’s beauty, visual impressions, sounds and scents – everything helps you relax. Slowly, a feeling of total presence and peace is emerging.
Take your time and enjoy the lovely surroundings! In a hot day maybe a swim in a lake would feel good to cool you down. Enjoy a nice rest while eating your lunchpackage. Food taste so much better out in the nature and after some physical struggle!
The hiking continuous along open landscape in Östra Ämtervik. There in the middle of the countryside lies Alma Löv Museum. On the fields there are many pavilions with exciting art exhibitions. In the main building there are more exhibition rooms and a café.
Filled with new impressions it´s time to continue the journey on bikes. After hiking for a couple of days it will be nice to travel in another way. From the bike saddle you have a great view of the nice countryside. In this part of Värmland Selma Lagerlöf found inspiration to many of the characters and context to her famous books.
A short bike ride will take you to a nice cottage where you will spend the night. Your luggage is settled in and a nice dinner awaits you! The following day will start with an exciting guided tour of Selma Lagerlöf´s Mårbacka.
