A short outing with interesting history
Start at ICA Ottsjö Bua. If you’ve forgotten your picnic or want to buy a fishing permit, this is your chance! Then follow the road west, to the edge of the village, and turn left through the magical spruce forest. Can you imagine anything more relaxing than sitting beside Ottsjön, listening to the waves wash against the beach? Perhaps that sounds more enticing than fishing.
When you are satisfied, continue your walk along the shoreline, before turning left up towards the village. You will pass paddocks and, in the summer, beautiful flowering meadows. After a while, Ottsjö and its mountain farms open out ahead of you. A gentle gravel road takes you back to the shop. If you want to walk for longer, you can take a right onto route 262. Both these routes have signs where you can read more about people and life in Ottsjö, then and now.
