“A breath of fresh air, and yet so close to the city”
Review of Delsjon

Delsjon

Reviewed July 18, 2013

HOW TO GET THERE: It's a very close to the city, i think it took me under 10 min on the bus from Korsvagen station to Kalvemossen Station (next to Svenska Massan).
LAKES: The lakes are beautiful and the forest very clean, you can see people jogging around the lake, canoeing inside it, families hiking around it in the forest paths. But i went in May, so it was still too cold for swimming. Some reviews say it's too artificial, and i was very concerned before i went there. However, it is a good place to do light hike, and picnic, so i absolutely recommend it.

If you would like to get away from the big city, walk around the lake, breathe ions, feel safe, let the dogs run free (possibly illegal), this is perhaps the best suggestion in the Gothenburg area. This senior citizen finds that there is enough energy to make the two-hour 7 km small circle trip. The layout and planning/paths/bridges is amazing! One of the few outdoor walking spaces laid out/designed by modern adventure- oriented community officials. There are many steps, this may not be recommended for people that have problems walking.

Not so much for tourists as much as for locals. Really a wonderful resource if you have time for a day in nature. Nothing wild, no moose or bear, just to be clear, but a extremely well kept public area, fully immersed in Swedish nature. Great walking, running or mountain biking paths, great swimming in clean lake waters (if temperature allows). Reachable from downtown Gothenburg with a short tram ride, followed by a 20 minutes walk.

Well lit and very popular running trails. 8k loop takes in a couple of lakes and you feel like you are right out of the city, despite being only a few minutes from the centre
