What to see?

Environment: The walk goes through a mix of pine and leaf forest. Granite cliffs will rise from a blue lake. You will hike past deep forest, bogs (no danger for wet feet), and cliffs covered with ancient moss.
Wildlife: This close to Stockholm we rarely see big mammals, but smaller mammals such as hare or big birds like capercaillie are seen more regularly. The area is also full of small, colorful birds.

Detailed program

You will meet your guide and the other joining participants at the meeting point. Here you will be introduced to the days’s program and what you can expect to see. We quickly hop into the van and make way towards the nature reserve. A drive less than half an hour away we arrive at the nature reserve, where we submerge our selves into the forest. We’ll walk through varying areas and you will be amazed how beautiful it gets so close to the inner city! We stop for lunch and a campfire, and learn some more about Sweden’s wildlife. During the rest of the break you can have a dip in the lake or even jump from the cliffs! After lunch we hike on over viewpoints and over narrow forest trails.
