Recreation

Come and stay in our hunting lodge to experience the calm of the nature, far away from the stress of the city. Hike on the meadows that are kept open through pasturing and mowing. Enjoy the wild orchids growing on the lime rich land. Pole out on lake Tåkern to angle perch or take a canoe and paddle in the reeds and canals. Staying in the hunting lodge, you are right in the middle of the alive and buoyant birdlife. By the lodge, mother nature herself is the entertainment; there is no TV, nor radio. The murmuring reeds and the intensive sound of birdsong creates an impressive scenery inspiring the generation of new thoughts and ideas. hofgarden5 By the side of the visiting areas on the lake, there are several hiking trails and birdwatching towers and more than a few opportunities to go on guided tours.
