About Frostavallen

Frostavallen recreation area has beech woodlands, glittering lakes and an open landscape. Hiking in the dramatic landscape on the several hiking trails is an adventure. Beech woodland dominates the area and wood anemones cover the ground in springtime. By the lake Dagstorpssjön there are remnants of old volcanoes from the Jurassic period and the landscape is more dramatic here with precipices and steep slopes. When it's been snowing there are slopes to go sledding down. There are several nature reserves - Bjäret, Dagstorp and Ullstorp - with special rules and restrictions. Check them out further down on this site.
