Summertime Sweden great for kids: report

Guardian writes that families love Sweden’s watery highs
Described in a travel feature on Europe’s finest experiences for families, Sweden’s Klarälven River amid Värmland’s landscape of forests, hamlets and farmland is a delight, The Guardian writes – “the ultimate family slow travel experience”.
Paddling down the river averages just 2km per hour, the article says, continuing: “The river is wide and mellow, so this trip is suitable for children of all ages, as long as they’re keen to wild camp on the river’s banks. You can stop whenever you want to hike in the forest and be sure to look out for beavers around the banks and shallows. An adventure yes, but a peaceful one.”
Gunnerud is the starting point, about four hours from Oslo or Stockholm by train to Karlstad, then by bus.
Other family holidays suggested in the same article include rock climbing on the Costa Blanca, zip-wiring, canoeing and abseiling in Scotland, cycling in the Austrian Tyrol and hiking in Crete.
In another piece, the same newspaper recommends Skara Sommarland in Sweden as one of the top summertime waterparks in Europe – an outdoor park with around 40 attractions and heated water throughout.
