Sights and outings in Årjäng

Fishing and outdoor activities

The nature surrounding Sommarvik offers plenty of exciting outdoor activities! If you are interested in exploring the lake system you are definitely in the right place. The lake system Dalsland-Nordmarken is one of Europe’s finest with fresh air, clean water and a rich nature and wildlife. There is an endless number of lakes, well suited for canoeing and fishing. Perch and pike are the most common fish but there are also good “put-and-take” waters accessible if you are looking for larger catch such as trout.

Cycling and hiking

There are plenty of nature trails suitable for both cycling and hiking. Next to Sommarvik is Orrfjället with beautiful nature trails, and we can also recommend a visit to the nature reserve Glasskogens Naturreservat, a large area of wilderness with winding streams, large and small lakes, vast forests and a rich wildlife. Here you will find canoe trails, beaches, excellent fishing opportunities, rest areas and shelters.
