Arrival and further info

RelaxRanch is located on the idyllic Värmlandsnäs peninsula in the inland sea of Vänern. Here, in beautiful natural surroundings and very close to the water, my enchanting vacation farm is waiting for you and your family. A classic hideaway for the best vacation of your life! The island archipelago on your doorstep. Fantastic sandy beaches await you here. Only 1.5 km away from our farm is the small leisure harbor "Ekenäs" with camping site, boat moorings, bus stop, restaurant, kiosk and fishing spots.

If you are flying into Gothenburg, you can either hire a car or take the train to Säffle. However, a car is recommended, as Säffle is 40km away from here and you can simply be more flexible when traveling. The direct flight from Zurich to Gothenburg takes around 2 hours. From Gothenburg, the journey by car to the farm takes approx. 3 hours.

I recommend you buy the most important groceries on the way here. At Botilsäter Lanthandel (about 20 minutes away from me) you will find a small assortment for daily use. The next larger village is Säffle, where you will find good shopping facilities.

Dogs are welcome at the RelaxRanch. I look forward to seeing your furry friends. Dogs must be kept on a lead all year round at the RelaxRanch. Then you should also remember the Swedish Everyman's Right (Allemansrätt). This rule states that dogs must be kept on a lead in Sweden from March 1st to the end of August. During the other periods, the dog can be allowed to run free, but should be well-trained enough to listen when called. Otherwise, there is always the option of using a tow line in the Swedish forests, which is available in various lengths (3-15 meters), to give the dog the necessary exercise.

Dogs can be taken into Swedish cities and towns, but it should be noted that they are not allowed in stores, restaurants, cafés, etc. The reason for this is that there may be Swedish citizens who are allergic to animal hair and could feel disturbed when visiting restaurants. You should therefore consider from the outset whether it is absolutely necessary to take the dog with you to the small Swedish town or whether it would be better to leave it in the vacation home for a short time. I can also look after your dog for a few hours by prior arrangement.

The ferry crossings are also very smooth, provided a few rules are observed. On some ferry crossings, especially the longer ones, special dog cabins can be booked and the dogs are offered a place to relieve themselves. But here, too, the rule is that the dog may not be taken into the restaurant, but must remain in the cabin.

Despite the rules of conduct that should be observed when holidaying in Sweden with your dog, Swedish nature offers endless opportunities to spend a relaxing holiday with your four-legged friend.
