In the whole nature reserve Glaskogen, it is now forbidden to make fires with solid fuel (wood, coal, grass, rice and branches). It is still possible to make a fire in our official fireplaces that are marked on our map and with spirit or gas stoves. But be very careful!
Best regards, team Glaskogen
We will close our overnight cabin at Dammarna during the high season this year. We do this in order to be on site at one of our most visited locations in Glaskogen. We will have staff at Dammarna every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday during July and August. We will document the visitor pressure and flows and analyze the needs to be able to develop the site for 2024.
At the same time, we inform about Glaskogen, sell Glaskogen Conservation Cards and fishing licenses, ice cream, drinks and other necessities.
We will also rent out 4 canoes at Dammarna.
Best regards, team Glaskogen
Right now it is very dry in the forest and land which means that there is a big risk of forest fire within the Glaskogen nature reserve. Make only a fire in our official fireplaces. Fire very carefully and make sure the fire can not spread. Always extinguish the fire completely before leaving the site.
Also keep in mind that shards of glass etc. in sunlight can start a fire. Cigarettes must not be thrown on the ground.
Keep track of any fire bans. We will inform here and on social media if a fire ban is introduced. We would also like to recommend MSB’s app “Brandrisk Ute” (in English), where there is always up-to-date information about the your current position. Also keep in mind that there are different levels of fire bans. So read carefully before you go out and make a fire.
Fire carefully and sparingly and have a nice time in Glaskogen! Team Glaskogen

Due to the fact that more and more motorhomes and similar camps are in the Glaskogen nature reserve, large natural values and values for outdoor life have been negatively affected in recent years. In order to protect these values, the County Administrative Board of Värmland has this spring decided on a ban on setting up caravans, motorhomes or the like in places other than specially prepared and designated places. We are currently developing more pitches in different places in the reserve, but are currently referring to the campsite in Lenungshammar. Regards, Team Glaskogen
