Söderåsen National Park was formed in 2001 and extends over 1,625 hectares and the nature is varied, featuring lush deciduous forests, impressive talus slopes with high cliffs, flowing streams and panoramic views. The long, deep fissure valley by Skäralid is especially frequented. It is a rift valley of immense scope with perpendicular cliffs that envelope the Skärån river running along the bottom. Other impressive sites are Odensjön lake in the Nackarpsdalen valley as well as the vantage points of Kopparhatten, Hjortsprånget and Lierna along the Skäralidsdalen valley.
The National Park offers many different types of experiences. You can sit and relax by the lake or go for a adventurous walk with a guided trail.
In the park there is a visitor centre with exhibition in Skäralids naturum and a restaurant where you can enjoy good, near-produced food. The main entrance at Skäralid is by car from Röstånga or Ljungbyhed.
In the national park you can also grill and camp*
9:15 Meet at Eoshallen, have a cup of coffee and socialize before departure
9:30 Drive towards Söderåsen.
10:30 Walk to the National park.
For this excursion we offer several walking options (5, 10 and 15 km), because we believe that Söderåsen is full of discoveries to be made by wandering and taking the chance to walk along one of its amazing trails, but we also understand those of you who prefer to enjoy the quietness of nature by resting and enjoying a small walk around the lake. We will adapt the schedule and walking to the answers you will give us on the poll included in the registration form.
