Värmland is about half the size of the Netherlands and with 270000 inhabitants, there's plenty of space for everyone. Most of the county is forested, with great opportunities for hiking. In late summer and autumn the forests abounds with berries and mushrooms. There is also a small population of wolf and bear.
The rivers and lakes are a paradise for those interested in boatlife and fishing. Lake Vänern has the largest fresh-water archipelago in Sweden.
For the culturally interested, the home of Noble Prize winning author Selma Lagerlöf is now an interesting museum. In the middle of July, there is a big music festival in Arvika.
