The pilgrimage route is over 100 km long, varied and scenic. The trail takes you from Vänersborg via Holm's church outside Mellerud to Edsleskog. Along the northern part of the hiking trail there are fresh campsites with windbreaks and fireplaces. But you can also choose to stay in a hotel or hostel and arrange transport between the stages. The pilgrimage route has some more difficult passages with hilly terrain and long ascents, which on the other hand rewards the hiker with an incredible view. The new southern part from Vänersborg, on the other hand, is easier to walk and stretches mostly along passable roads.
In Dalsland's only national park on the border with Norway, there are hiking trails from 3 to 22 km long through unique nature and untouched wilderness. With its approximately 3,000 hectares, Tresticklan is the third largest unbroken and relatively unaffected forest area in the country outside the mountain region and Norrbotten. The nature in Tresticklan National Park is characterized by narrow and high mountain ridges that extend in a north-south direction. Between them are bogs and long, narrow lakes. The sparse and barren pine forest with lichen and moss-covered rocks, together with the large number of lakes, form a tranquil environment where you can walk in unbroken wilderness for several days.

Karl XII's road is one of Dalsland's most popular tourist routes. It is about 12 km long and stretches from the croft Forsebol, about 6 km south of Dals Rostock, over the mountains to Järbo church on the west side. It was over Kroppefjäll that one of the old roads to Norway went and it was, among other things that which units of Charles XII's army marched during the attack on Norway in 1718. The road was then abandoned and was for a long time completely overgrown but in the early 1960s it was rediscovered. Those interested cleared the road, built bridges and bridges and arranged directions over the mountain. Thus, the old trail could be reopened on Pentecost 1961 in the presence of about three thousand people.
