Our national parks will show you the wild, the mystical, the untouched – Swedish nature at its most impressive. The travel package “From the old-growth forest to the inner sea” provides a unique opportunity to experience two national parks and vastly contrasting environments over the course of two days. The wild Tiveden at the heart of Skaraborg Country and Sweden’s most isolated national park, in the midst of Lake Vänern. Southern Sweden really offers an unexpectedly dramatic wilderness. “So close, yet so far away”, are words that come to mind once you’ve experienced the journey from the old-growth forest to the inner sea.

Accompanied by a local guide, you will not only gain great insight into the natural environment that forms the national park, you will also get to learn more about the fascinating history of the different areas. We travel out to Djurö aboard Jonas Lindborg’s environmentally friendly converted Nimbus Paragon 31. With room for 12 passengers and a 700 hp engine, the boat is optimal for Lake Vänern – safe and fast. When the weather is pleasant, you can sit out on deck. You will be staying at Norrqvarn Hotell & Konferens, with the Göta Canal as your next-door neighbour. Here, the food, the tranquility and the good life is always in focus. The locally produced four-course menu is an amazing flavour journey, shaped by the finest ingredients Skaraborg has to offer.
