Welcome to Torsby
Sleepy Torsby, deep in the forests of Värmland, is only 38km from Norway. The area’s history and sights are linked to emigrants from Finland, who settled in western parts of Sweden in the mid-16th century and built their own distinctive farms and villages in the forests. These homesteads, many of which have been well preserved, are the main attraction for visitors to the area, which also has some neat, niche museums.
Public transport isn't great and sites are far apart, so it's easier and more fun to explore the town if you have your own transport.
