Description

On this day trip we show you the most amazing spots in the surrounding! The best of it: These places are far offside the tourist trails so you enjoy great nature mainly in privacy. We will visit an old mill and stamp that are still in functioning state and we will explore their construction and mechanisms. On our further way we pass through an area where we find plenty of glaciar boulders left from the more than 1000 m thick ice layer that once was covering Scandinavia. We even visit a reserve where water has formed a unique landscape. At this place live utters and it is considered the most southern stream where the freshwater pearl mussel might have survived the exploatation of streams in Europe with a fertile population. Here we even have the chance to take a bath in natural pools when the weather is suitable. After lunch we explore an ancient mine where the element Nickel was discovered once ago. We round up this trip in Hamra National Park with a guided tour through untouched wilderness and get impressed by the magic of pure nature that this place has plenty of.
