About Karlstad

Karlstad is a small city in Värmland Region of Sweden, which translates literally to “warm country.” The summers in Värmland are reportedly the sunniest in Sweden, which is how it got its name. It sits upon Sweden’s largest lake, Lake Vänern. It is located about equally in between Stockholm and Oslo, about 3-3:30 hours to each city. Ice hockey is widely popular in Karlstad due to its great team Färjestad BK that plays in the highest division in Sweden.

Karlstad is home to many outdoor recreation areas. One of the most popular, especially for children, is Mariebersskogen. It is a free-admission park that has multiple playgrounds, green picnic areas, walking trails, mini golf, and even a petting zoo! I loved going to see the animals. There are cows, horses, pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens, sheep, birds, and more! Another nice place to go is to Lake Vänern. This is both Sweden’s and the European Union’s largest lake and is about 2,181 square miles. Many Swedes come here to camp in the summer in trailers. There is a small beach area where you can go to swim in the summer. There are canoes and kayaks for rent as well. There is also a large forest trail that goes around the lake with outdoor gyms along the trail and plenty of hills to ensure you get a good workout. Hammarö is another nice place to go in good weather. It is a municipality just south of Karlstad that is home to an old lighthouse. It is situated on Lake Vänern, making it a great picnic spot! If you like ice hockey, definitely check out a Färjestad BK game if you are there during the season! The city is crazy about this team, making it a fun atmosphere!

Discover Karlstad through Chelsea''s eyes

I am a travel enthusiast! I love to travel to learn about different cultures, histories, and beliefs. I believe that traveling is imperative to global peace, for without traveling one is subject to a myopic life. Traveling introduces you to places you would have otherwise never seen, cultures you would have never come to understand, and people you would have never met. Through this, perspective can change and travelers develop a deeper understanding of the world. When we as people come to understand each other, humanity succeeds. Whoever you are and wherever you live, get out and travel!
