Short Version
The history of this area reaches 4.5 million years back in time, far back to a prehistoric ocean. On the floor of that ocean, the limestone forming the bed rock of Bjurälven was created. Today, the water turns the bedrock into the formations that enchants and entices most people visiting the area.
The nature reserves Bjurälven and Korallgrottan represent Sweden’s most characteristic karst landscape.
 
What you can expect
We meet at the farm Leipikvattnet, from where we hike three kilometres before reaching the karst landscape. On our way, we learn much about the flora and history of this area. At the end of our hike, we reach a small shelter, where we stop for a short rest with coffee and some snacks before entering the karst area. Now the adventure begins!

During the day we see dolines, sinkholes and siphons where the river disappears underground and shows up in different places. We enjoy our packed lunch and listen to the guide talking about the area’s unique geology and fantastic flora. We continue walking through the “Blind Valley” to Bjurälvsgrottan and pass both the ice cave and the snow dolines, before we return to Leipikvattnet. The trail contains footbridges and steep sections prepared with stairs. The tour can be tailored to the group’s abilities and preferences.

A fantastic and unparalleled hike!
