Maybe take a swim in Skärsjön and soak in the sun? There you can lie on a sandy beach, lawn or rock slab and jump in clear and cooling water. At Skärsjön there are changing cabins, toilets, jetties, diving towers and a beach volleyball court. Located at biking distance about 4 km from Brukshotellet.

If you want a little tougher challenge then take your mountain bike with you and test the Masbo trails, four different rounds between 2.4 and 5.8 km near the town. You need a good mountain bike that has at least a damped front fork. The longest trail has a beautiful stretch along the eastern edge of Skärsjön. The owner of the hotel also usually run this trail!

You can also test the long gravel trail of 87 kilometres. This tour takes you around the country of Skinnskatteberg on mostly gravel roads through a rolling forest landscape along lakes and historical landmarks. To maximize your experience your should preferably have a MounTainBike (MTB) or Cyclocross. It is also possible to get around on a regular bike. The gravel trail take you to a more solitary place compared to the paved roads and closer to nature, bird- and wildlife! Along the trail you will find many nice places for picnics and barbecues.
