From the Church of Segersta and the folk museum (hembygdsgård) of Segersta you follow small roads on the countryside and through the forest.

In Rengsjö you will find another impressing hembygdsgård - Västerby; in the summertime rich with local activities connected to its history and the present time, a café, art exhibitions, etc.  

Contact the congregation or the folk museum in good time for advice concerning accommodation. Rengsjö camping offers simplier lodgings for caravans and tents, and in cottages. The camping site is situated by the lake, and it is a short walk to culture events, stores, restaurants and cafés.
