Something for everyone

In Sundsby there are a number of different trails with varying levels of difficulty. On certain stretches, the vast majority can easily get there, while the trail up to Solklinten and the caves is difficult to access with narrow, deep ravines and wedged rock blocks. Here, in places, you may have to crawl under or climb over rocks. For the older children, this is a fun adventure. For the very little ones, there is Ivers Skogpromenad, a children's round tested by three-year-olds. Along the path, there is a rest area with a view, natural seating and gnarled furrows to cling to. Here is also the Sundsby farm café, where you can eat or have a coffee in lovely surroundings.
