When you should visit the park

In Björnlandet every season has its charms. Gathering berries in the autumn, hiking in the summer and tracking mammals in the winter – these are just some of the things you can find to do.

Winter

When winter is darkest and the snow is deepest, it is good to have wide wooden skis. The hours of daylight are few, but dawn and twilight can be extremely beautiful in the winter landscape. Sometimes the moonlight can be so bright that you can ski in the glow of the moon. Watch out then for open brooks or cavities.

Late winter, early spring

Find out if the road is ploughed up to the Angsjön entrance. The crusted snow of spring can be fantastic for skiers. A favourite winter activity is to track mammals in the park.

Summer

As soon as the road has dried up after the spring thaw, the park is accessible. Drive carefully. Early summer is the bird’s season. Places that often are great for birdwatching include Angsjön lake and the Ansjöbäcken and Björkbäcken brooks. Later in the summer the cloudberries flower and berry season is about to begin.

Autumn

The deciduous trees light up among the pine and spruce trees. The mosquitoes have stopped buzzing, and the air becomes fresher to breathe. During elk hunting visitors may share the area with elk hunters, but there is plenty of room for hikers as well. Visit some of the hilltops and enjoy the view.
