There is much to see and experience here! Before reaching the Church of Järvsö, you will pass Karlsgården – a traditional old farm of Hälsingland (Hälsingegård) with a rich program in the summer; café, music, film screenings, theme exhibitions of local costumes and their history, for example, and handicraft –  and Järvzoo – where you can watch the wild animals of Sweden such as wolf, lynx, wolverine etc. during a walk along a timbered path through the beautiful nature in Järvsö.

Safety information

You will need to cross the Route 83 a couple of times. About a mile after Undersvik, you will enter an older road that runs next to Route 83, but eventually you will need to walk some hundred meters on the main road before crossing at TEWE Kvarn. Take it easy!
