Things to do at- and in the area of Vildmarksbyn Eden



Gröna Dalen (The Green Valley) is the area around Ransbysättern. Here, there are several small roads and paths. A short walk leads from the other side of the gravel road up to Stackalstjärnen where there is a wind shelter. Or you can choose the longer circular hike, Spegelleden, which takes you down to Björkaholm via Domarberget and back to Vildmarksbyn Eden.

With a bit of luck, you might encounter some of the wild animals that live around Vildmarksbyn Eden, such as moose, deer, roe deer, beavers, wolves, bears, foxes, lynx, wolverines, as well as forest birds and small animals like voles and mice. Along the forest paths, there are also small places to rest and eat your packed lunch. For more information, you can contact our hostess, who is a trained and certified international wilderness guide and knows the area well.
