Toftåsa myr (bog), Åsnen National Park

Toftåsa bog is in the southernmost part of Åsnen National Park. It smells of sun-warmed marsh Labrador tea and you almost get the feeling of being in truly northern latitudes. Cycle north on Banvallsleden trail for about 5 km. There you will see a sign pointing you to a small road to the right. After about 400 metres, park your bike and take the trail across the bog by foot. The rest area at Lake Svartsjön, where the trail ends, offers a beautiful view.

Getnö Lake Åsnen Resort

Take your bike to Getnö and experience activities on the water! Here you can rent kayaks and canoes and have real experiences out on the water. There are also guided boat trips in the national park, osprey safaris and guided fishing trips! If you’re more of a landlubber, there are great hikes, guided storytelling walks and mushroom excursions to enjoy. It is about 7 km to Getnö from Ålshult on an asphalt road. The road is beautiful and winding, but it is also quite narrow and is shared with other traffic.
