Good to know

The accommodation in the village is open all year round but the reception is partially unmanned; information about key collection and anything else you may need to know ahead of your stay will be provided when you book. A map of the village is available on the notice boards at both entrances and at the reception desk at Handelsboden on the ground floor of Teklas Loge.

How to find us

Some satnavs will take you on a detour here. Take the turning for Haurida Kyrka (Haurida Church). At the church follow signs for Vandrarhem (youth hostel). Free parking is available at the entrance to the reserve. Driving is not allowed inside the reserve but you are welcome to drive in to pack and unpack. 

Check-in and check-out

When there are staff on site, check-in and check-out are done at the reception desk in Handelsboden, located downstairs in Teklas Loge. If you arrive outside of these times, we will leave a key and a map of the village in the key box outside Handelsboden; this is also where you should leave the key when you check out if there are no staff on site.

  • Check-in: From 2 pm (early check-in subject to availability)
  • Check-out: Latest 10 am


You can pay by card, Swish or cash at check-in or check-out. If there are no staff on site, we will agree in advance how the payment should be made. If no prior agreement is made, we will send you an invoice.


Driving is not allowed in the reserve, but you are welcome to drive up to your cottage to unpack. Parking is available at one of the entrances; we recommend the southern car park (Haurida entrance) if you are staying at the youth hostel. Both car parks are free.
