By Car:

Our recommended route is to travel on the E4 motorway and approx. 30 km north of Gävle take the 303 exit at Hagsta/Hakke Gård. Follow the 303 towards Ockelbo. Drive approx. 13 km and where Ockelbo starts (by the huge sign "Välkommen till Ockelbo") turn left on the gravel road marked "Kolforsen 6". Drive 6 km on the road until you come to Kolforsen. In the middle of the village, by a sheep field on the left hand side, turn left on another gravel road and your cottage is the yellow one with the large veranda marked with number "39" just after the sheep field on the left hand side.

www.eniro.se or www.googlemaps.com give good road descriptions.

By Public Transport:

Trains and buses in Sweden are modern and fast. There are many train and bus connections to Ockelbo, but most of the time you are required to change in Gävle. We can arrange pick up on arrival and drop off at departure from Ockelbo train and bus station.

Hadde igjen noen fine dager i den gule stugan. Det tredje året vi er der nå og trass det dårlige været, koste vi oss Godt med plass, wifi funker bra(tenåringene likte det når været var dårlig) og vertskapet er fabelaktig som vanlig

A big comfortable house in a beautiful environment

We were 3 couples and we wanted to be away from everyday life. The house was cozy with a lovely balcony. It was fully equipped with everything we could have thought. We found bicycles, video games, movies and outdoor traditional Swedish group games included in the rent. A famous river for fishing and boating is as close as 10 minutes cycling through a nice path in the woods. Fishing was free of charge and permission cost was on the house. Beside the river there was a lovely BBQ place. The last but not the least is the owner, who was the loveliest and most helpful person we could expect. It was our first time there but won't be the last, we will come back again Agneta. Thank you :)

Christmas Decorated

What a lovely place to be! The house was warmly decorated for Christmas, lots of snow outside. We enjoyed every minute of it and all the information we got for the environment was very useful. See you again!
