Jarvzoo

Reviewed By Bonnie M - Gardiner, Montana

A great little zoo. You walk along wooden boardwalks to view the different animal enclosures. All of the animals seemed content and no pacing like you see with animals at other zoos. The highlight for me were the four wolverines and the three wolf packs. The wolves were very curious and approached the fence to check us out. They had many different species of owls, a lynx, brown bears, etc. The Predator Center was attached to the entrance lobby of the zoo. Unfortunately for us all the sign descriptions were in Swedish, but I think that it was describing human-predator conflicts and how to resolve them. I'd definitely go back!

We were four people from work going rafting as an "after-summer" activity! The two guides were very informative and fun, making us all feel very safe and even more excited for the activity at hand. We went up and down a strip of the river...MoreThank you for writing this review and for your kind words. We're really happy that you enjoyed the rafting activity. Thanks for recommending us to others. /Pelle & Annis

JPB is such a great place for Downhill I went back 8 times last summer. I had never tried it before and absolute loved it. From what I hear it’s not only for beginners but quite the opposite with lots of great runs for more...MoreThank you very much!!! Such a fantastic review. See you this summer =)

Jarvsobacken

Reviewed By BigblueSweden - Sweden

Sweden has a handful of bikeparks spread around the country. Some are best suited for beginners and some for experts. JBP has a wide variety of tracks that caters for them all, thats what makes this place a bit special.
We hired a couch (Hanna) to teach us the basics and she delivered both knowledge and inspiration with a lovely big smile. The gear is up to date and they have about 80 bikes for rental together with helmed and paddings.
The tracks them selves are checked every day and (f ex break bumps) adjusted if needed.
After your runs you can hang out in the lounge area with a cool beverage and something from their menu. Usually you can choose between 4-5 dishes such as soups, burgers and pasta.
If you like downhill this is a great place to visit.

Jarvsoklacken Naturreserv

Reviewed By Henry C - Stockholm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

Det är en brant väg upp och man får kliva över både stockar och stenar för att ta sig fram - men utsikten från toppen är fantastisk. Möjligen hade man kunnat röja undan ett par träd så hade utsikten varit ännu bättre och mer ostörd. Klättringen uppför kan bitvis vara ganska krävande, men det är bara att vila en stund om det blir för tufft.

Had a lovely evening here. The presentation of the starter was exceptional and the commentary around both the food and the spirits was interesting and obviously the passion of the owners. I would thoroghly recommend , but think an evening here will always be quite boozy :-), but was something a bit different and very interesting.

Vill du promenera nära älven har du kommit rätt! Stigen runt reservatet är cirka två km och det är lätt att gå. Ungefär halvvägs finns en fin plats för picnic, med utsikt över älven. Informationstavlor om naturen finns längs stigen.

Тут целая история была. На сайте вычитал, что туры будут всего три раза за июль, а может и вообще за лето. Специально подгадал так, чтобы попасть к одному из них - 8 июля в 18 часов. Приехал заранее - никого нет, всё заперто, только две собаки внутри дома бегают. Стал ждать, уже время пришло - никого. Я всё жду. Вдруг в четверть седьмого приезжает машина, это шофёр привёз домработницу что-то сделать в доме. Я к нему: а тур как же? Он ни сном, ни духом. Не знаю, говорит, ни о каком туре, но сейчас поедем назад, я хозяину скажу. А ехать до хозяина всего 4 минуты, оказалось. И ровно через 8 минут он приехал назад и привёз хозяина! Тот хоть и был немного навеселе, но оказался весёлым и добродушным. Открыл дом, давай, говорит, смотри всё, что хочешь. Ну, я себя дважды просить не заставил. Облазил весь дом, в итоге моё терпение было вознаграждено индивидуальным бесплатным визитом в обществе самого хозяина. Украшения старинные, середины 19-го века, росписи сделаны местным художником, снаружи есть интересные арки. В общем, будет что вспомнить!
