Riding

There are two horse riding tracks of 8.4 km and 3.7 km long. The car park for trailers is just north of the recreation area office. There is a paddock which can be rented and it is also possible to hire a horse and cart to travel round the site. To book, contact the recreation area office.

Fishing

Rainbow trout can be caught by either fly fishing or spinning from the Kejsardammen Ponds. If you would prefer to outsmart pike, perch or zander, try Lake Snogeholmssjön, where float fishing, casting and spinning are permitted. Both the pond and the lake have platforms suitable for disabled users. In winter you can do ice fishing on Lake Snogeholmssjön.
