NATURE RESERVES IN GAGNEF
Two beautiful nature reserves close to our holiday park.
Situated next to our holiday park and very special. Änjansdalen is a valley which is created during thousands of years by the river Sifferbotjärn.
A trail of 3 km will bring you through the valley. Along the trail there are information panels about the flora and fauna, the geological evolution of the valley and the countryside.
A shelter (slogbod) with barbecue place stands on a little hill which was formed during the ice-age.
The climate in Änjansdalen is a so-called local climate. The area has constant high humidity, is almost windless and has much shade of large tree crowns. This climate is perfect for many plants, animals and birds. For example the not-too-common Ostrich fren is growing here. It's a special feeling to walk through this meter high bushes. Also other flora thrives very well in this shady environment, among other things, Muskroot and Gold Saxifrage. This shady environment also contributes to a rich birdlife.
For example Willow warbler, Icterine Warbler, Wood Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat and Blackcap which nests here for many years.
- Djurmo Klack-Oxberget
Djurmo Klack is situated 358 meters above sea level. At the top are two burial mounds, the largest one has a diameter of more than ten meters. Many legends tell of the trolls who lived in the rocks, that can be seen from the main road.
