A big part of our commune is covered by “Finnskogen” the forest of the Finns – named after the Finnish settlers in the 17th century. We might name a forest after you!

In the forest and around we have endless opportunities for outdoor living all year around with our numerous rivers, lakes and hiking trails which allows for both summer and winter activities. You might want to enjoy the “Allemannsretten” – the freedom to roam which allows you to walk, even camp, almost anywhere!
