Skålsjögården is located on the national road 50, also known as Bergslagsdiagonalen. On the section between Alfta and Falun, Skålsjögården is located just before the border between Hälsingland and Dalarna in the idyllic and remote village of Skålsjön. Whereby small village is already an exaggeration. The region is known as Finnskogen, which means Finnish forest. This name refers to the legendary and also historically interesting history of the place, which is characterized by the settlement of the forest area by Eastern Finnish tribes in the 17th century.
Experience nature! - This slogan is program with us. The forest around Skålsjön has always been a bear area. Also the wolves have spread out again in the last decades and moose and red deer also feel at home here. It is not uncommon here to cross the path of an adder or to spot a toad on the side of the road. Where you can have the best nature experiences and how to avoid or even favor an encounter with a bear, we will gladly tell you here on the spot.
