CAUTION! Risk of forest fires

There is a risk of forest fires in Glaskogen right now, so be extra careful when you fire and make sure to put out the fire completely before you leave the place. And fire only in our prepared fireplaces that are on our Glass Forest map. Leave no trace! Team Glaskogen


Ban on camping with motor vehicels in the Glaskogen nature reserve at other than prepared and designated places

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

The moose hunt in the Glaskogen nature reserv begins every year on October 8 and lasts until January 31. It is mostly hunted in the beginning during the first two weeks, but then there is mainly weekend hunting during the entire period. From 18 August, there will also be deer hunting until 31 January.


Dogs on the leash!

Please remember to keep your four-legged friends on a leash at all times. Whether dog or other pet. And that applies all year round and in the entire Glaskogen nature reserve! Thank you for your consideration!


No bike rental

We don’t offer any bike rental right now but are planning for good biking experiences next year.
