The 90km railway embankment coated with asphalt
Klarälvsbanan is a disused railway embankment, where the rails have now been removed. The entire trail is coated with asphalt and traffic is strictly prohibited. Klarälvsbanan will take you from an open farmland in the south to the dark and welcoming forest in the north.

Klarälven is in close proximity
You will always have Klarälven and its sparkling water in close proximity as a faithful companion.

The trail becomes a path from Hagfors to Sysslebäck
Klarälvsbanan, which is coated with asphalt, ends close to the thick forests surrounding Hagfors and Klarälvsleden (the Klarälven path) commences. Klarälvsleden is a 120km long cycle and hiking path through wilderness and forest roads, from Hagfors/Uddeholm to Sysslebäck.
