There are many fine places to swim in Karlstad where everything is always close to water. You can choose from a sandy beach or rocks, close to the city centre or further outside.

Take a picnic for a whole day on the beach or enjoy a feeling of being by the west coast on rocks. You can enjoy a cooling swim and some beautiful nature whether you head to Lake Vänern or a smaller lake.

Björnrukan is a beautiful, long sandy beach at Södra Arnön in the Värmland archipelago. Delightful nature and a bit off the beaten track.
