    Hej, we are a Dutch couple 60+. Since 2019 we live in Sweden after 15 years in France.

    We live in the middle of the nature reserve "Glaskogen" in Värmland. We're located only 5 km from Lenungshammar's camping with mini shop, restaurant, canoe and bicycle rental. In the summer, Café Karl is also open.

    Glaskogen Nature Reserve is a 28,000 hectare wilderness area with winding waterways, large and small lakes and vast forests. There are a total of 300 km of hiking trails ranging from a short morning hike up to weekly hikes. If you are interested in paddling, there are nice canoe trails that go through several of the reserve's almost 80 lakes with great opportunities for fishing and unique nature experiences.
    Glaskogen's nature reserve is the county's largest nature reserve and can be reached by car from several places in the western part of the county. Lenungshammar is the center for the nature reserve and is a good starting point for visitors. Not only is the area one of the most beautiful in Värmland with rich and varied animal and plant life – moose, hare, fox, roe, badger, lynx and even wolves are common animals in Glaskogen.

    Because of the variety of animals surrounding our house, we don't need much more than our 2 dogs, a Schapendoes and a tax and 2 cats. So it's important for us that you love animals.

    As I already did write the Glaskogen is a very interesting envirement for those who love nature.
    We're exactly in the middle between Årjäng and Arvika. From (Årjäng-flixbus, Arvika-train) you can travel to the airport of Oslo (Gardemoen) in about 2½ hours.
