Glaskogen Nature Reserve

The dream about a complete nature experience in a quiet and peaceful environment comes true in Glaskogen Nature Reserve

The dream of a total nature experience in a quiet and tranquil environment is fulfilled in the Glaskogens Nature Reserve. The glass forest is located in the border areas between Arvika, Eda, Säffle and Årjäng municipalities in Västra Värmland. Experience the 28,000-hectare wilderness area with meandering streams, large and small lakes, and vast forests. The glass forest card is your ticket to the nature reserve, so you can use the service facilities that are available, for example, windshields, overnight cabins, barbecue areas, wood, toilets and more. The money paid for this goes directly to the management of the area. You buy the card at Glaskogen Informationcenter or at Säffle tourist Office.

Glaskogen Nature Reserve has miles of hiking trails, both longer and shorter trips, with wind protection to take breaks at and also overnight cottages. There are over 300 km of hiking trails of varying difficulty, in the booklet "19 different hikes and one car trip" you will find suggestions for hiking tours.

Canoeing in the Nature Reserve is a magical experience. Take a short trip, a full day or maybe a few days of overnight. The beautiful scenery and the clean lakes are an impressive feature of every turn. The reserve also has great opportunities for fishing. The fishing license is valid in some 80 lakes and lakes in and around the Glaskogens Nature Reserve. Note that fishing in running watercourses is prohibited. Fishing catches vary from pike, perch, pike to salmon, trout, char and whitefish. To get fishing in the Glaskogen you need a fishing license. Children under 16 fish for free.

Experience the nature of the bicycle saddle on the small gravel roads that wind along the lakes, in forests with opportunities to see wildlife. You are not allowed to cycle on the hiking trails, so contact the Information Center in Lenungshammar for tips. It offers mountain bikes that are specially adapted for trips on the gravel roads.
