About the neighbourhood
Apart from offering a peaceful stay in tranquil surroundings - adventurous all year-round activities such as husky sledge rides in wolf county, snow-mobile tours, elk safaris, canoeing, berry picking and much more can also be arranged. In the immediate vicinity there is the lake with excellent swimming facilities as well as the all-year round hot tub /sauna and as bikes, canoes and boats are included in the price, it is easy to get around.

Some activities require some driving, but takes you through traditional Swedish landscape.
Getting around
This is a country-side property and as such a car is the most convenient way to get around. If however, you only wish to stay put in the cottages there are frequent trains to Ockelbo station, but no public transport to the cottages exist in the summer so you need to rely on taxis.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Stockholm Arlanda: 110.0 km
Railway: Ockelbo Train Station: 12.0 km
2 hours north of Stockholm. 30 minutes north-west of Gävle.

Budget airlines, such as Ryanair and Norwegian.se fly regularly to Stockholm Arlanda (2 hours drive), Stockholm Västerås (2 hours drive) and Stockholm Skavsta airport (4 hours drive) from airports all over Europe making this an affordable destination. Flight time is only 2 hours from central Europe and Britain.

If you want to avoid the large Arlanda airport then Skavsta and Västerås airports are small, modern facilities making luggage and hire car collection a speedy process. Booking direct with www.hertz.se can sometimes prove cheaper for car hires than deals with the airlines.
