Hi, we still remember your children running free around the area playing with the rabbits. We have invested in several mosquito machines to keep the biting insects to a minimum. Also windows have mosquito nets. Would love to see you again sometime.

About the neighbourhood
Apart from offering a peaceful stay in tranquil surroundings - adventurous all year-round activities such as husky sledge rides in wolf county, snow-mobile tours, elk safaris, canoeing, berry picking and much more can also be arranged. In the immediate vicinity there is the lake with excellent swimming facilities as well as the all-year round hot tub /sauna and as bikes, canoes and boats are included in the price, it is easy to get around. Some activities require some driving, but takes you through traditional Swedish landscape.
Getting around
This is a country-side property and as such a car is the most convenient way to get around. If however, you only wish to stay put in the cottages there are frequent trains to Ockelbo station, but no public transport to the cottages exist in the summer so you need to rely on taxis.
