The varied landscape surrounding Gustafsvik offers plenty to do for the adventurous soul. How about taking a hike along the 30 km long Iron Trail, which not only offers beautiful scenery but also several historical sites, ancient monuments and thrilling sights. If you consider yourself more of a water than land kind of person, you can rent a kayak and experience Sweden’s biggest lake from the first row. But Vänern is not only good for a relaxing kayak tour – it’s also one of Europe’s hottest sportfishing waters, where you can try your luck with the world-unique freshwater salmon, large sea-migrating trout and world-class pike fishing.
