“Great wilderness closed to the city.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Delsjön is a very nice natural reserve and is used by many to get a relaxing time from the daily stresses. Many people use this area to exercise like running - walking - powerwalk. It is a place to enjoy the tranquility.

“Lakes and forest near the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Delsjön is a huge area with a variety of lakes and lots of forest. The forest seems never-ending and you can walk without seeing anyone else once you get off the main tracks. Swim in Delsjön (or ice skate on it in winter) or rent canoes and kayaks. There are two good cafes - Lyktan which is just near the main parking area and Bertilssons Cafe which you can also drive to. It is lovely in the spring when the flowers are in bloom and the trees are just turning green.

“Perfect for long walks and runs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

This is part of a huge lake system just outside town, easily accessible by street car or car. Totally huge forest and great lakes for swimming (in the summer), fishing, running, walking etc. Nature at its best!

“Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

A dip in Delsjön in the summer is not to be missed. You will see many summer houses dotted around this beautiful freshwater lake.
