Stuga: Small cabin with great advantages, Björkebo, Värmland, Sweden

September 26th, 2013

Round trips in Sweden are also very popular for families with children. Many campgrounds particularly north of central Sweden offers generous spaces, kitchens and well-equipped shop’s . If the tent wet or if a cabin accommodation needed, because of rainy days, small stuga huts can be rented at most campgrounds. Especially cozy and practical are the little Stugas on the Björkebo campsite, near Stöllet, at the river Kläralven.

The river Kläralven meanders about 460 km from Lake Roge to Lake Vänern. Vänern is Sweden’s largest lake, and the third largest in Europe. For many adventurers Kläralven is well known for kayaking and rafting activities.

Björkebo campsite, beside the Kläralven, is located about 130 km north of Karlstad. Because of the regularly occurring thunderstorms in the evenings we asked for an alternative to pitching our tent. The owners Gun and Bengt Barhammar offered a Stuga. This little cabin is not only inexpensive, but also pragmatic equipped for a stopover. The mini kitchen and fridge are located outside the cottage. In the interior there are four beds, a table and two benches or chairs. The houses are all lovingly prepared from wood, clean and cozy.

For preparing larger meals there is a kitchen on site. The toilets and showers are basic and functional.

The Barhammar family offers also a rustic house in the mountains, where we were not there yet. This house is only accessible by a 8 km hike through the wilderness!
