Eco-park

The Eco-park of Färnas is a piece of nature well worth experiencing.

An Eco-park is a continuous landscape with great biological and ecological values. The landscape around Eko-park Färna is flat and contains a mosaic of swamps and bogs. The Eco-park consists of 2 822 hektar.  Map over the Eco-park.

1. Tarmansbogölen 
An area with big aspen trees and old sallow-trees. The beavers build their dams here and the trees they cut down make great habitats for woodpeckers in this forest.  

2. Kampkällan
A well in the centre of the park that got its name because the horses used to drink from it. Kamp is an old name for horse. You can still taste the cold water. The well is a home for many water-insects, among others an unusual stonefly that hovers above the surface in the spring. 

3. Stora flyten
 
Situated in the eastern part of  Färna with forests and bogs and a rich birdlife. With some luck you can see species like sandpiper and nightjar. There are also some kinds of owls and osprey that nest here.  

4. Flena hage
A beautiful resting place with old aspen trees. You can enjoy a beautiful sea view here. Grazing animals kept the firs at bay and allowed space for the leafy trees in a way that is typical of the Eko-park. The Lake Flena is popular for fishing and canoeing. 

5. Gillbo 
An old pasture where a new generation of deciduous has rooted itself. There are old, fallen aspen trees that hosts the white bulging coral tag fungus. In the summer the Poplar Admiral butterfly flies over the forest meadow with its typicaly coloured wings. 

6. Trollberget 
An area of older spruce. The lichen hanging from the trees creates a sense of being in an old saga. Folklore has it that the trolls lived under the moss covered stones.  

The forests of the Eco-park used to supply wood and coal for the old ironworks that were situated where the Färna Spa is now.
