 It is the SJ Intercity train Stockholm-Oslo, which is taking this route due to reconstruction of the railway near Karlstad.

 Next destination is Tossebergsklätten hill, 343m above sea level

 The view from the hill is scenic

 It is possible to climb this tower
 The road to this hill is one of the steepest around here, so the national ski team is practicing here in the winter

 Fryken lake
 It is possible to view Fryksdalsbanan railway from the top, here is a freight train passing by

 Different types of local food is served here
 Stamfrändemonumentet, is commemorating the emigrants from Sweden and Norway to USA, and immigrants from Finland to Sweden.

 Nearby is the Rottneros park
 The park has one of north Europe's largest collection of sculptures
