Klarälven and Vildmark i Värmland - Magical memories

Klarälven and Vildmark i Värmland - Magical memories

Ten thousand lakes. And between these is Klarälven that twists its way from north to south. Building your own raft and flowing at the pace of the river can be one of the b est ways of experiencing the beautiful nature of Värmland.

Klarälven has been very important to Värmland’s forestry industry. Even as recently as the 1990s logs were floated southwards at the pace of the river. Today you can experience the same pace on a raft that you have built yourself. Wilderness in Värmland (Vildmark i Värmland) offers day trips or week long stays in the wilderness.  You begin your journey by building your own raft, then spending the night beside the river and cooking over an open fire.

Families on adventures on Klarälven

There are a lot of families who have moved away from their day to day lives and taken the kids for an adventure on Klarälven. Never have the conversations been so long and never has the food tasted so good as when out in the middle of silence and nature.

The log raft journey will suit those who like to be out in nature and appreciate experiences that are not completely pre-arranged. You will need to reckon on a measure of physical activity and some mental challenges. The conditions change with the change in water level, the weather and the wind. You can expect a constantly calm flowing pace in the river. The rafts travel at between 1 and 3 km per hour and along the way you will encounter small adventures such as stones, sandbanks and white water.

Stripped down, warm and cosy

Finding the perfect place to spend the night, to make and light a fore and to experience the light and dusk are the reward for the day. A reward that must be experienced.

This is something that a Wilderness in Värmland employee once said: ” It is stripped down, cold, invigorating, warm and cosy all at the same time”.

You are welcome to experience Klarälven with Wilderness in Värmland.
