Boat at lake Lelången is launched

At lake Lelången, one of our hiking trails crosses the lake. You can easily get across here by rowing boat. Oars and life jackets are placed at the boat. In the winter we pick up the boat, but during the remaining seasons it is accessible (picking up and putting in takes place according to weather and ice conditions, which vary from year to year). Greetings, team Glaskogen.

Places marked with * will not have firewood throughout 2023 (due to climate change preventing driving over ice/frozen ground and logging destroying our driveways to the windshelters – however we are working on restoring destroyed roads and finding new ways to get out with firewood).

Moose hunt in the Glaskogen Nature Reserve

Now moose hunt is going on in Glaskogen and is most intense for the first two weeks. Please dress in a way so you can be seen well, stay on the trails and remember not to disturb the hunt if you come across hunters. And the hunters must take the hikers into account. Such is the Swedish law of public access. Everyone can move freely in nature but must show consideration and not disturb or destroy. Best regards, team Glaskogen

Liming with helicopters in Glaskogen

The Kalkningsförbundet announced last night that liming within the Glaskogen nature reserve will take place on Monday, July 31 and possibly Tuesday, August 1. This means low helicopter flights and the deposition of lime over various waters in the Glaskogen.

The helicopterpilots are doing their job carefully and always controll the area if there are any hikers och paddlers before they send down the lime.

Please don’t park your cars at the big lime sacks as the helicopter will go down there to pick up the lime.
