What you can expect
What will you see?
Local Environment: 
This is one of Sweden’s oldest forests, rocky terrain and numerous lakes. We will leave the mainstream paths behind and go off-trail to really explore. This is the wild. The nature reserve is big, so we´ll use the well fixed and easy accessible tracks to get to the points where we leave the sivilisation behind and go off-track. Some times it will get technical with roots and rocks. You can find edible mushrooms and wild berries.

The local bird life is very rich in this area. Typical species are black woodpecker, green woodpecker, three-toed woodpecker, the pygmy owl and many other birds like capercaillie. We can see beaver dams, there are a lot of beavers in the area. Sometimes we see them swimming. We often come across deer and moose also.

“Great place to spend the day!
This was a great hike, our guide was awesome and very knowledgeable about the place we hiked. We learned a lot and also enjoyed the activity, highly recommended.The one suggestion to Green trails I would have is to let the other fellow hikers to please refrain from using the cell phones for texting and especially calls. It was a nature hike and other people on the hike talking on the cell phone, does ... more not allow the group enjoy the activity. It is not Green Trails fault but a simple warning added at the start of the hike may help prevent this issue.But overall we really enjoyed it and it was a great day
I loved it so much!!
I went with friends and it was an awesome experience throughout. Highly recommend experience and learned a lot since it was my first time in Sweden and hiking in general!!!
