    by MalenaN Updated Dec 27, 2005

There are some 170 different species of birds, and bird watching towers are built around the lake, in Nibble, Lilla Älvgången and Sörbo. It is also a good lake for fishing. Sometimes beavers and elks can be seen. River Dalälven runs through Hovran.

    Lake Hönsan

    by MalenaN Updated Dec 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the summer you can go for a swim in lake Hönsan. A white diving (jumping) tower has been there for a long time. The original one got rotten and was torn down. It was not going to be replaced as the Municipality wanted to save money. As people in Hedemora loved the tower and “it had always been there” money was collected and the tower could be rebuilt.
