Art trip in Värmland 17/6 2023

Come with us to Maria "Wildheart" Westerberg's paradise on earth. Here she finds peace and lives in harmony with the forest, which is her creative studio. Along the forest walk behind her house, we come across several of the many works of art made of sticks Vildhjärta was inspired to make. We have time for afternoon coffee in her garden before it's time to move on to Borgvik, one of Värmland's best-preserved mill environments.

We start at Borgviks Herrgård, and if we're lucky we get to meet the lordship ourselves. We learn more about the manor and its history. We continue with a guided walk in Borgvik that ends at Borgviks Gård.

Here, the old barn has been fully equipped and renovated and now you can boast a café, a restaurant, farm shop and a party hall.
Galleri Mats Bergman has this year been commissioned to
" decorate " the art gallery where local artists from the area are also represented. We meet Hans Karlander, owner and entrepreneur, and he tells us more about the farm and its future plans. The day ends in the most pleasant way with a three-course dinner in Matbruket at Borgvik Gård.

The farm at Borgviks Gård , Swedish curiosity mixed with Värmland finesse - that's the philosophy behind the farm. The restaurant serves modern and genuine food in a cultural environment where the meal becomes an experience. We work with the best ingredients and always in season.
