Take the bus to Glaskogen


Between June 24 and August 11, the popular bus 130 once again operates the route Karlstad-Glaskogen-Arvika round trip. The bus stops in Lenungshammar, the heart of Glaskogen, and here you will find our Infocentre, canoe centre, campsite, shop and café. Lenungshammar is also a very good starting point for shorter and longer hikes and paddle trips.

Bus 130 will run Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday with two trips in each direction per day.

The bus runs the route Karlstad – Grums – Värmskog’s church – Glaskogen – Jössefors – Arvika.

The bus is part of Värmlandstrafik’s summer timetable. You travel with Värmlandstrafik’s regular tickets and you do not need to pre-book your seat.

When you arrive at our Infocenter in Lenunghammar and show your bus ticket, you get a free 24-hour ticket to Glaskogen and a cup of coffee at Café Carl. Welcome to Glaskogen!

It is possible to bring bicycles on the bus (maximum five bicycles). However, we do not guarantee a place for your bike in case more cyclists have already boarded before you.

You can find the bus timetable and more information here:

Boat at lake Lelången is launched


At lake Lelången, one of our hiking trails crosses the lake. You can easily get across here by rowing boat. Oars and life jackets are placed at the boat. In the winter we pick up the boat, but during the remaining seasons it is accessible (picking up and putting in takes place according to weather and ice conditions, which vary from year to year). Greetings, team Glaskogen.

Ban on camping with motor vehicels in the Glaskogen nature reserve at other than prepared and designated places


Due to the fact that more and more motorhomes and similar camps are in the Glaskogen nature reserve, large natural values ​​and values ​​for outdoor life have been negatively affected in recent years. In order to protect these values, the County Administrative Board of Värmland has this spring decided on a ban on setting up caravans, motorhomes or the like in places other than specially prepared and designated places. We are currently developing more pitches in different places in the reserve, but are currently referring to the campsite in Lenungshammar. Regards, Team Glaskogen
