A Different Nature
In Dorotea, you can discover a beautiful and unique nature. Don't miss the unique and legendary Vittertrappan near Granåsbyn, on the road from Svanabyn or Stenbitshöjden, where there are breathtaking views over the powerful cutting steep cliffs. At Månsberget in Ormsjö, you will find many interesting plants. The mountain is a so-called "sydväxtberg" which means that due to the protection from the northern winds and with the extra heat from the sun to the South, the plants are confused and many from the south grow here. Blaikfjället Nature Reserve in Sagatun is a great area for picking mushrooms, cloudberry and other fruits.
