Terrain descriptionModerately hilly, very complex terrain rich in contour and rock details. Mostly good runnability. The hilltops are sparsely covered with pine trees, while in between the vegetation is slightly more dense consisting of a mixture of conferious and deciduous forest. There are some paths and roads.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Excellent forests for hiking nearby, especially the Skuleskogen National park. The sea archipelago outside suits kayakers perfectly. Why not paddle around the peninsulas where the competition takes place?
