If you spend more than a few days in Karlstad during the summer I strongly suggest a trip by bike or inlines on the Klarälvbanan or NKIJ-banan as it was formerly known. It starts by lake Kroppkärr and goes on at least up to Munkfors, some 60 km north of Karlstad.

Check tip for NKIJ-banan as well as tip for borrowing a bike.

This is a representative picture of what the path looks like. The photo was taken just a few hundred metres north of the start of the track.

Some horses in a field very close to Edsgatans Gård on the Klarälvbanan.

The first organised palce to rest is at Edsgatans gård, overlooking Lake Alster. It's 5,6 km from the start of the track.

Lots of butter flowers in a field

This photo was taken from the bridge crossing the river Klar, Klarälven, jsut south of Forshaga municipality, some 21 km north of the start of the track

THis time around, in June 2005 I chose to stop at Forshaga, have a hot dog and a rest and then turn back the 21 km to Karlstad. For me this was a total trip of 42 km and it took me about 3-3½ hours ona beautiful, darn hot day. :)
