    Scenic countryside at Asa, Berg and Tolg

    by Sjalen Updated Aug 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you need a bit of scenery in the midst of all the forest, this is it!

    You will need a car for this one unless you make it over several days and camp or if you're on a cycling holiday. Go to the "forgotten" villages of Berg, Tolg and Asa north west of town and hike around Lake Asa (Asasjön) with its mansion and forest nature reserve. It is known for its connections with Göring whose Swedish wife knew the owners so he once landed his plane on the lake. Today it belongs to the agricultural university and has a forest research centre which is how I discovered these villages. You can also stay in the mansion itself as it is a hotel and restaurant. Finally, the lake is the start of a canoeing trail.

    Tolg has auctions now and again in summer where you can make a bargain or just bring home something unusual.

    In Lärja outside Berg, is Singoalla's Cave, a romantic cave by a 20 metre steep into a forest lake. It is famous for being where author Victor Rydberg let his story about the gypsy girl Singoalla and her knight lover have its tragic end. Berg is also known for being the home of Elin Wägner. An early 20th century pacifist and feminist author who travelled around pre WWII Europe to speak, and also wrote a lot about environmental issues (in them days!) and it's easy to see where she go the inspiration from! She also founded Swedish "Save the Children". So as you can see, these idyllic villages have seen it all!

    Kurrebo Gardens and Lunnabacken lake view

    by Sjalen Updated Aug 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kurrebo is an Idyllic rural place in Urshult, famous for its fruit orchards and berries. You can get a guided tour of the gardens if you phone first, and otherwise come for a coffee and a great view of Lake Åsnen behind the blossoming fruit trees :-) If you want to see more of Åsnen, go to the nearby slopes at Lunnabacken and you will be rewarded with meadows full of fruit trees, oaks and hay too.
