The cultural tradition is strong in the countryside around Guesthouse Eleven and Arvika with many talented artists, craftsmen and cultural entrepreneurs. Directly from the hotel there are bike tours for all tastes and it is easy to mix culture with interesting sights and beautiful scenery. This approximately 31 km long biking trail runs along Lake Racken, where the Racken painters lived and inspired. Several of the artists lived by the lake and parts of their art can be seen at the Rackstad Museum in Arvika, Taserud. End or start the tour with a visit to the museum - some places / motifs you will recognize on your tour around the Racken. You also pass "Blue Lagarn"
("The blue farmhouse") in Perserud where it is a nice art exhibition in the summertime. Most paved and scenic roads.
For those who want to stay a little longer there are two more nice bike rides.
Dag 1: Arrival at Guesthouse Eleven.
If you arrive early in the afternoon, you can discover the nearby nature reserve Bergs Klät. It offers a beautiful walking tour with a historic touch in which its interesting landscape and the bronze ridge from the Bronze Age is an interesting and beautiful destination. The view over lake Glafsfjorden is magnificent and a picnic stop on the peninsula is a perfect choice.
