Selma Lagerlöf wrote a lot about her home district, among other things,
lake Fryken. Situated just by the shore of this lake lies a beautiful park
called Rottneros park. The park has a large variety of trees, a garden
of herbs and also a large set of sculptures by famous artists.
The oldest nature reserve is Apertin outside Kil in southern Värmland.
Apertin is a mansion that got its name from the Scottish town Aberdeen.
The mansion has a peculiar park thanks to the saying that every landlord
should plant an unusual plant in the garden. If you walk around in the
garden of Apertin you will see that the saying is true.
In the east of Värmland you can find a waterfall without water, Sveafallen.
It is situated outside Degerfors and it is a remnant from the Great Ice
Age. The area is very special with its giant kettles in the ground.
In western Värmland you find Glaskogen which is an area of forest where
very few people live, but many animals have found there homestead here.
It is a wilderness, but a quite well-arranged one. There are beautiful
streams for canoes and about 30 miles of excellent tracks for walking tours.
