Marvikarnas Naturreservat
There is a lot to see and do in Marvikarna and Krampan nature reserves. Particularly exciting is the area for those interested in birds, geology, ancient remains and flora. On a guided hike you will learn about the last ice age and how to read today's landscape formations. You'll also get to know about plants and animals in the nature reserves.

The steep rock formations Klövberget and Falkberget are a bird sanctuary as it is the breeding habitat of the northern eagle owl. Arctic loons and ospreys have also been observed in the reserve.

An approx. 9 km long circular hike combines varied nature with interesting historical sights. Skottvång literally gives us a deep insight into the mining history of the region. The abandoned iron ore mines are now mostly filled with water. In the summer, charcoal is made on the site in the traditional way. This process is now a popular and well-visited attraction. At Skottvångs Gruva Restaurant & Café we enjoy a typical Swedish fika.

If you wish, you can visit the gorge at Krampan Nature Reserve afterwards. A short walk of about 2 km takes us through the ravine and along the meandering stream, where it is cool and shady even in summer. A special highlight are the numerous ferns growing here!

Along the lakes Övre Marviken and Mellan Marviken there are several places suitable for taking a swim.

Clothing and shoes must be adapted to the weather.

Typical Swedish fika (coffee & pastry) included.
Lunch after arrangement.
