Wilderness Center

The Wilderness Center is an authentic and peaceful center of recreation, located right by the edge of Northern Europe’s biggest wilderness. Guests experience through a variety of services, such as: unique accommodation, local food, exhibition about the wilderness, horse riding and hiking, day tours and longer guided tours.
Visiting the Wilderness Center is an adventure. Every detail at the premises has been remade in the original style to make the visitor feel as if taking part in an adventure of the past. The buildings, interior decorations, food, activities and hosts all play a vital role in this experience.
A pleasant ride is offered, destined for the abandoned farm of Kleif where we will take time to absorb the beautiful surroundings and have a look into the old farmhouse. Those who dare can try their hand at winching themselves across the a river by a traditional cable-way.
