Dalarna and especially the area of Sifferbo (Gagnef) are excellent walking areas with varied landscapes.
In the surroundings of our park are very many possibilities for short or long walking tours and hiking.
The walking trails are going through a hilly area with forests, fields and natural landscapes, and the height differences are not so much. The trails are very good marked with red painted signs. Good walking shoes are necessary, because the terrain can be marshy and sometimes you have to walk through high grass and bushes.
