Tiveden always offers us wonderful experiences regardless of the weather. Therefore, you can be sure that a booked guided tour will take place. It is only when there is too much wind or flooding, that we may have to move the tour to another time or place for safety reasons.

Guided tour - Breakfast in the forest

Early bird in Tiveden National Park! We fix the breakfast. Being up early in these surroundings is something very special. The sounds, smells and light are so much more tangible. Maybe a capercaillie flies up from its night spot.

We follow the trails and you will experience small wonders along our walk, stories about life in and around the forests. Eventually, we set up breakfast in a beautiful spot and let the sun warm us.

When we separate at the main entrance car park a few hours later, you will have the whole day ahead of you in the national park and have received several personal tips for your own discoveries from your guide.

Our most inspiring stone in Tiveden is certainly the Junker Jägare’s stone. A boulder, transported by the Ice, that rises 15m up. Let us tell you the sad tale of the young woman, who fell in love with a simple hunter and what happened right here at this stone.
