There are direct
flights from Stockholm or Copenhagen. Airlines that usually have
good prices include: Lufthansa/SAS, KLM, Air France, Iceland Air
and Finnair. If you are travelling via London, Ryan Air has some
very cheap flights to Stockholm. Note, however, that Ryan Air does
not fly into Arlanda, which is the major airport for Stockholm. You
can also fly into Gothenborg. However, you would then need to take
the train from Gothenborg to Karlstad since there are no connecting
flights. This journey takes about 3 hours.
