Skidstugans outdoor area

Nature area and a meeting point for running, cycling, skiing and more

On the other side of the Dalbo Bridge is Skidstugan (the Ski lodge) in Vänersborg, which is the starting point for several different hiking-, ski- and MTB tracks of different lengths in fantastic forests and nature. Here you can move both through lush forest, through the nature reserve of Dalbobergen, and along Lake Vänern on your tour.

Skidstugan's outdoor area is the perfect place for those who like to exercise in nature. Here you can see a map of the trails that start at Skidstugan. Getting from the city center to Skidstugan by car takes about 5 minutes, and next to Skidstugan there is a free car park.

The facility, activities & sports

Skistugan is owned by Vänersborgs SK - the outdoor activity club in central Vänersborg which, in addition to its training, arranges several large events for orienteering, running and skiing. Among other things, they organize the annual Spring Rush (Vårruset), a running race for girls in central Vänersborg. The main goal is to create the conditions to be able to practice orienteering at all levels and for all categories. They work to create broad activity in all age groups with the goal of being an established elite club. Read more about Vänersborgs SK here and see what is going on.
