  • What a rest. Beautiful surroundings for hiking. There are all kinds of shacks to stoke a fire (wood and accessories present) only bring sausages to roast and enjoy! Snowshoeing fun activity. Looking for tracks in the snow of the Arctic Hare or a Fox. There is a frozen waterfall.

  • The area offers great things to see and do short visits for long walks. The views are impressive in many places and there are enough stopping places for hiking.
