To do at Torpet
There is some things you can practise all the year at Torpet. Just a short walk away from the house you find a lake, Dämstasjön. The nature is typical for Ångermanland, hilly with both water and forest. The area offers nice walks on the small roads arround the lake or in the woods. Or why not just follow an old ladder under the trees!
Here you will find the great forests and tranquility. Here you can hear the silence.
Relax in the sauna, barbeque and cooking coffee over open fire in the garden at Torpet. But you can also take a walk to the lake for doing the same things. Or, go further, in the woods, and stop there instead.
You can fish and swim both summer and winter. Visit any fishingwater or hike up for the Froksnipan and the place for barbeque at the top.
The forests include birds, deer, mooses, fox and lynx.
We´ll be happy to show you the animals on the farm. Meet the sheeps, dogs and – when they feel for it – the cats.
The year at Torpet
Make “kolbullar” – we tell you how! – and cook cooffe over open fire. Stay home at the village or down at the lake. Torpet´s own sauna is located in the dark wooded area. A cold night, with candles inside the sauna, and the stars in the sky outside, perhaps with a northern lights. It´s truly an experience!
Stroll, go skiing, pimple, rent snow shoes, borrow the old wooden skis for a fun ride, bring the snowmobile and take a ride from the farm out in the hilly terrain.
Or, just sit inside and in front of the fire.
Now everything is waking up. The lambs are born on the farm and when the ice is opening up on the lake, plenty of seabirds like ducks, geeses and swans are diligent guests.
With a Little bit of luck You can also start seeing the beaver.
Now nature is extra easy to reach and there are many events to visit. Near the croft you have the sauna and the barbeque, but you can also take a bath or the boat. Or boat. At the other side of the lake there is a larger swimming and playing area for the childern, a small kiosk and you can play golf here.
