Varmland
Varmland is one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Sweden. It is fairly centrally located in Sweden, near the border with Norway in Svealand. The beautiful nature makes your motorcycle vacation complete. The landscape of Varmland is very diverse: lakes, rivers, heath and marshes alternate with forests and green hills. More than 2/3 of Varmland consists of forests. There are more than 10,000 lakes in the area and these of course also characterize the landscape. Bears, lynx, wolves and moose live in the many forests. So watch it out.

There are two stops included in the route, but of course you can stop on the way at one of the many picnic areas to have something to eat and drink. You can buy things for this on the way at a supermarket. After an hour's drive you are in Filipstad, there is a COOP supermarket, near the Vikings Hamncafé where a coffee break is planned. Just cross diagonally and you are at the supermarket. After a little under 130 KM, if you follow the route, you will arrive on an unpaved road, which is not very difficult, ie there is no asphalt but it is hard to hit gravel, dust and grit with hardly any differences in height. You can also choose to drive straight ahead and turn onto the 50 in Kopparberg and turn right there. You will automatically return to the route. You then skip route point 19.
Then there is another stop in Gyttorp included in the route, but for the most part you will enjoy the beautiful scenery and the winding roads along the way.

In this 4-star route you mainly drive on good roads, and you also have the choice to drive a bit unpaved.

General information:
Sweden is a beautiful country. You will find nice cities, but also impressive nature reserves. Check the weather forecast. In Sweden it can be very hot, but it can also become very cold, so that you can bring the right clothes and other aids. Furthermore, it is advisable to book your accommodations in Sweden in advance. Sweden is a wonderful destination for a beautiful motorcycle vacation. As the largest country in Scandinavia you can go on extensive tours in a unique environment. Forests, lakes, nature parks and agricultural areas largely determine the landscape. Around the Swedish-Norwegian border lies the Scandinavian Highland, where the mountains rise locally to 2100 meters. The most important cities are Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. And if you cannot find a motor camping site or motor hotel, then it is allowed on the basis of the so-called Allemansrätten or everyone's right to camp freely in nature. As long as you take nothing with you and leave no mess behind, you can stay with your tent for a maximum of 24 hours in one location.
South Sweden also has the most motorcycle campsites, motorcycle hotels and other motorcycle-friendly accommodations. This part also contains the 5650 square kilometers of Vänermeer and the smaller Vänermeer.

About this route collection
Sweden and Norway are beautiful countries. You will find nice cities, but also impressive nature reserves. This versatility makes Sweden & Norway the perfect countries for an impressive motorcycle vacation.

In this collection 14 beautiful routes through Sweden & Norway.

Good preparation is half the battle, so please read the tips below carefully.
1. Check the weather forecast. It can be very hot in Sweden & Norway, but it can also get very cold. Always check the weather forecast before you go, so that you can pack the right clothes.
2. Determine in advance which route or routes you want to follow. That way you don't drive like a chicken without a head and you can make the most of your days off in these beautiful countries.
3. Learn about traffic rules. Slightly different rules apply in Sweden & Norway in some situations than in the Netherlands. By delving into the traffic rules, you prevent that you (unknowingly) commit a traffic violation and / or put yourself in a dangerous situation.

Furthermore, it is wise to book the accommodations in advance. It may be more fun to drive through these countries on the receipt, but you don't want to have to drive around endlessly to find a place to sleep. If you go to Sweden or Norway in the high season, the chance that you have to look for a place to sleep is greatest. It is also possible to camp during your motorcycle trip, but then find out in advance where this is and is not allowed. You cannot pitch your tent everywhere.

As the largest country in Scandinavia you can go on extensive tours in a unique environment. Forests, lakes, nature parks and agricultural areas largely determine the landscape, which also consists of flat parts and rolling hills. Around the Swedish-Norwegian border lies the Scandinavian Highland, where the mountains rise locally to 2100 meters.

Norway is known for its amazing natural beauty. Fjords that tens of miles into the country, snow-covered high plains, sharp mountain peaks and vast forests. In this sparsely populated country, most people live in the cities, the capital of which is Oslo.

Tolls must be paid on a large number of roads in Norway. Anyone approaching a toll road can simply drive on without stopping. With cameras above the road, the license plate of the vehicle is scanned, not the license plate of the trailer or caravan. It takes a long time for the photos to be processed.
The bill is then sent to the Euro Parking Collection (EPC) in London within four to six months.

Mandatory on the motorcycle: Safety vest - A motorcyclist must bring at least one safety vest. In the event of a breakdown or accident, the driver is obliged to wear a safety vest. The ANWB advises motorcyclists to also take a safety vest for a possible passenger.
Advice: First aid kit, motorcyclists are advised to bring a first aid kit.
