Since 1980, this company has organized log rafting trips down the River Klarälven for Swedish and foreign visitors. It's a travel experience which people dream about to come true at least once in their lifetime.

Vildmark i Värmland offers time but it also gives time. Here, nature decides speed and content.

The log rafting trips on the Klarälv River are rooted in Swedish history, preserving and keeping alive the rafting culture of olden times. In keeping with tradition, shelters, boats, and equipment from the time of the log rafts are also used. In 1998, Vildmark i Värmland was awarded Grand Travel Award´s first Ecotourism Prize.

An operator with big insight into environmental and qualitative issues, who was given the first Ecotourism Grand Travel Award already back in 1998. River rafting on the river Klarälven connects Swedish history with a distinct added value for the visitor. Close contact with involved landowners is combined with clear instructions about the principles of the Swedish Right of Public Access. These river rafting trips have contributed to marketing the whole region of Värmland, and shown the possibilities of refining Swedish nature tourism.
