  • Store Mosse National park near hillerstorp is definitely worth a visit for those who are excited by nature and wildlife. Has previously been here and gone trips besides the bogs at 2 narrow boards. Visited this time their Naturrum, which unfortunately was closed due to a private event. But there is a lot to look at and there are good observation towers, just know there is a Naturrum and here there is also a lift up. This day there was very hot and the birds stayed a little in peace. get a brochure, here are all hiking tours traced and the same is true of the bird towers. We were greeted on a little curious squirrel who certainly have previously spoken to the tourists! A nice place with peace and quiet and great experience, may be recommended.

  • We were from the University here on excursion. This National Park offers very good to observe birds and there are some ways to see also dragonflies. The way signs are confusing, because the distances given are definitely not always entirely accurate. Absolutely recommended for nature lovers.

  • Whenever we are in the area we rotate the round because Kavsjön. For our teens are childhood memories for our small an adventure. Who not only quickly "runs through", looks a lot from the animal world. Specht, geese, various butterflies and salamanders are almost always. Depending on the direction, barbecue comes with fresh water after 2 or 3/5 of the track - here we have let grilled and so accuracy hang out then for lunch. Good shoes, and some condition should be brought to easily cope with the 12.5 km, or slightly more if the fork to be made to the towers. We like to come here.
