Tour in Korallgrottan

Tour in Korallgrottan

Sweden’s longest cave

Join us on a full day adventure in Sweden’s longest cave! After a 4 kilometres’ hike through untouched mountain forest we put on full caving equipment and explore the cave system’s narrow or wide tunnels, depending on the group’s desire for adventure. Only the entrance gates have been added to the cave – it is still in its natural state. After visiting the cave we enjoy a nice meal made of local food and according to local recipes.

Hiking in Bjurälven

Hiking in Bjurälven

The hidden river

Experience the karst landscape of Bjurälven, winner of the Geological Heritage Award in 2014 for the most exciting geological destination. Here you can watch the river flowing through many fascinating formations such as sinkholes, siphons and giant’s kettles nestling between lush flora and fauna. The tour follows the clear, drinkable water of the river Bjurälven, flowing through Sweden’s longest underwater cave.

Beaver Safari

Beaver Safari

Sweden’s oldest beaver family

Come with us on a lovely evening or morning paddling tour over crystal clear waters to visit the oldest beaver family in Sweden. The lower parts of Bjurälven is the perfect place for beaver watching, and their tracks can be found all along the river. This is the place where the first beavers were released after going extinct, and they have been modifying the surrounding environment to their liking since then.
