Do I need to wear a life vest in the canoe? Where do I go, or who do I call, if I fall off my bike and hurt myself? Åsnen is a safe area and spending time in nature is amazing in every way. But as with all nature experiences, it is good to be aware of possible risks, and how you can prevent accidents in a smart way.
Also note that during periods of extensive drought, open fires are often prohibited throughout the entire Åsnen area.
