Norra Kvill National Park, the third smallest of Sweden’s 30 national parks, can be found among fallen trees and moss-covered boulders in the northern part of Vimmerby Municipality. For 150 years, the forest has been allowed to grow wild over a 114-hectare area, first established in 1927, with a core area of 27 hectares. About 80 per cent of the trees are pines, some of which have grown old and tall, up to 2.5 metres in circumference, 35 metres in height and 350 years in age.
Signposted trails pave the way for forest experiences beyond the ordinary. With a chance to meet the handsome wood grouse, pass countless trees with fire scars and hear the hoot of the barn owl at dusk, every visit is unique. Around the waterlily-filled waters of Lake Stora Idgölen, you can listen to the song of the crested tit, and the challenging hike through rocky nature up to Idgölen outlook point is worth every step when you reach the beautiful outlook point and see the magnificent view of Rumskullaskogen Forest.
