Description of Walk

Walk along Count Karl’s historic transport route for iron. Värmlands Bergslag has played in important role in the development of Sweden via iron ore mining, iron works, shipments to Lake Vänern and onwards to the rest of the world. The Järnleden iron trail starts with a forest path. After a few kilometres you will reach a rest point by a lake. You will pass the remains of an old charcoal burner’s hut and a 200 m footbridge at Bromossen. There are also traces of an earlier English garden on the edge of the manor house area. Niklasdam Garden has a pelargonium museum and café that is open in summer. After visiting Niklasdam, follow the same path back to Bergsjötorpet.
