Norra Kvills National Park

Norra Kvills National Park

Among fallen trees and moss-covered boulders in the northern part of Vimmerby municipality lies Norra Kvills National Park, the third smallest of Sweden's 30 national parks. The well-marked trails pave the way for forest experiences beyond the ordinary.

For 150 years, the forest has been allowed to live freely on the 114-hectare area that was established in 1927. About 80 percent of the trees are pines and some of them have grown both large and old with a circumference of 2,5 meters, 35 meters high and 350 years in old.

During a walk in Norra Kvills National Park, you have the chance to meet the stately woodpecker, pass countless trees with the sound of fire and hear the call of the sparrow owl at dusk. Around Stora Idgölen, the water lily-filled waters sing the tufted warbler, and the challenging hike through the rocky nature, with a tough climb up to Idhöjden's viewpoint, is worth every step when you reach the beautiful viewpoint with a magnificent view of the Rumskulla forest.
