Viltvattnet – A little gem in the Vedyxaskogen forest for the young bird watcher
Are the little ones in the family fascinated by birds? Then a visit to Viltvattnet in Vedyxan can be the ideal trip. Just 400 metres into the forest, as you leave the parking area, you come to the oasis that goes by the name of Viltvattnet. This body of water has been put there for the area’s wild animals. You can enjoy a sausage with bread in the nearby barbecue area, which gives you a front-seat view of the bird-life being acted out above the lake.
How to get there: Bike or car from Uppsala.
Accessibility: The 400 metre walk can easily be done with a pushchair, wheelchair or walker. A dry toilet for the disabled is available in the parking area.
Walking for the little ones in Lilla Djurgården
The hiking trail in Lilla Djurgården allows children as well as adults to experience nature at some distance from Uppsala. There are several routes to choose from, and the green paths are an excellent alternative for children. Along the route you pass ten stations, which makes your walk more exciting, while you learn more about woodland animals and nature at the same time.
How to get there: Bus 5 or 9, or car. From Uppsala, take the road for Sävja, and then turn right towards route 255, and then right again onto a minor unpaved road. The car park is at the end of this unpaved road.
Accessibility: The path is well-lit for users of pushchairs and wheelchairs.
