“An earthly paradise!” Exclaimed the visiting Carl Linneaus in 1746. With dense forests full of wildlife, magnificent rivers and a tranquil lake right at their doorstep, Trollhättan and Vänersborg are just that: a paradise on earth. They lie side by side next to Lake Vanern, the biggest in Sweden. Rent a kayak and explore one of the many small islands surrounding the area and take in the views of incredible wildlife and nature. And if you are a film lover there might be an even greater incentive to visit this part of the world. Tröllhattan is the film centre of Sweden, sometimes referred to as ‘Trollywood’ – a beautiful area widely used for Scandinavian productions.
