In the nature close by mushrooms and berries can be picked and several birds can found and if lucky even a moose can be spotted. The Göta kanal can be experienced by boat or by following the trails on a bicycle. Karlsborg and Forsvik also offer several historical sites. In Skövde, 50km away, there is a larger assortment of stores and one of Sweden’s largest aqualand.
Why not explore Tiveden’s Nationalpark by horse or play golf (five golf courses within 50km)
Karlsborg’s Fort is very much worth a visit as well as Forsvik’s industrial museum and the paddle steamer Nordewall.
