The nature

Tisselskog Nature Reserve is set in the beautiful cultural landscape in Högsbyn on a peninsula in Lake Råvarpen. The sloping species-rich hay meadow is located in a sunlit position on the Dalformation. The formation is the remains of a mountain chain that was formed on the bottom of a
shallow sea more than one billion years ago. The calcareous rock consists of chlorite and shale and supports a rich flora. The area is easy to access both from land and water, since Lake Råvarpen is part of the lake system of the Dalsland canal.

Find the area

Tisselskog is located between Håverud and Dals Långed, just south of Högsbyn. Follow the signs to the parking area. 

Please take into account the regulations of the reserve
