About Djurholmen

Djurholmen on the southern slopes of the ridge Hallandsåsen is the place for you who are looking for quiet and seclusion. Quite simply a little more wilderness. There is an impressive wetland, a ravine with a small waterfall and masses of woodland. If you are lucky you might come across elk and black grouse.

Do and experience

Walking and rambling

The footpaths at Djurholmen are relatively short, but criss cross each other so that it is possible to walk further. The signs along the Mossestigen Trail describe how the bog  was formed, grew in depth and how people made use of it.

Wildlife watching

The best place to watch for wildlife is probably from the eight metre high viewing tower at the bog. If you get up at dawn in the early spring, you may have a chance of hearing the display of the black grouse.

Eating

There are three picnic areas with benches and tables, two of which have a barbecue.
