Several snow mobile tracks cross at Särnaheden and you can park your snow mobile outside your bedroom window. Borrow a ‘kick’ , toboggan or snow shoes and enjoy snow and winter. In the evenings you can relax using our games room or luxuriate in a warming sauna. It is of course OK to just enjoy staying at Knappgården and its surroundings.
