Tents at Hornborga 

Do you want to pitch your tent and wake up at one of Sweden’s best bird lakes? Since the area is a nature reserve, you can only sleep in a tent in certain sites. 

Fågeludden 

At naturum Hornborgasjön and Café Doppingen it is popular to stay overnight with a campervan/recreational vehicle, but you can also pitch your tent here. It is both beautiful here and close to WCs and facilities. You are welcome to set up a tent on the grass next to the hill on the left side, before Café Doppingen.

A morning walk along the track offers many possibilities for bird encounters. From Utsikten at the far end of the cape, you get a good overview of the lake. There is also a grilling area.

Ängsladan 

Just over a kilometre south of Fågeludden lies Ängsladan. In the fenced in area just outside the barn entrance, there is the possibility to pitch a small tent and stay overnight. If you place the tent outside the fence, you risk getting an unexpected visit from the grazing animals.

The Ytterbergsleden trail offers a nice hike from Fågeludden to Ytterberg. On the way, you will pass Vässtorpsåsen, which blooms with both cherries and pasqueflowers in early summer. Ängsladan serves as a bird hide with viewing windows. Bring a stool and binoculars and spy on the birds’ morning routines.

Utloppet

On the west side of the lake, you can sleep in a tent at Utloppet. You are welcome to pitch your tent on the grass lawn between the parking area and the grilling area. However if it is a wet summer then it may be better to choose one of the other tent sites.

At Utloppet, visitors are offered an easy hike along the road on the embankment that was built in connection with the restoration. Often there are a large number of birds in the area. There is also a bird tower where you will have a good view of the lake.

Sleeping in a tent at trandansen 

From late March to mid-April, thousands of cranes, geese, whooper swan and ducks collapse at Trandansen on the south-eastern side of the lake.

During that period, it is very popular to stay with your campervan/recreational vehicle. Of course, you should be able to experience the cranes early in the morning even with a tent. Note however that it would be unwise and unsafe to pitch up your tent out among the cars. Therefore we suggest that those with a tent set up in the grassy area right next to Bjurums church.

During the crane season, the Trandansen Info Centre is open. You can learn more about the cranes there.

rules of the nature reserve 

In a protected nature, the right of public access is limited. Rules on how we are expected to conduct ourselves are instead set up for each nature reserve and national park.

At Lake Hornborga, it is forbidden to pitch tents except in  the designated sites that you see above. 

Contact Naturum Hornborgasjön if you have any further questions.
