Experience a relaxing stay with forests, lakes and beautiful views with overnight stay at the family-run Hotel Sommarhagen and in a house of glass with its own wilderness lake. You cycle in the small-scale and beautiful nature in Sommenbygden. Here you will find real wilderness, caves, winding dirt roads framed by courtyards and old villages with small shops.

Your base for the cycling adventure is Hotell Sommarhagen. Then you cycle to the Glass House in the forest down by the beach where you sleep inside glass walls with breathtaking views of greenery and starry sky. Here you will find comfortable beds, groceries and everything needed for your Glamping stay (a luxurious version of camping). You live on your own lake in unspoilt nature and prepare the food yourself. An experience that does wonders for big city residents who need to take part in nature's healing power. 

The first and last night you stay at Hotel Sommarhagen with high comfort, and here you can leave personal equipment. There are two glass houses with space for 2-4 people in each, the beds are fully-made and have soft comfortable mattresses (one 160 cm bed and two 90 cm beds). The houses are 15 sqm with a veranda of 10 sqm overlooking the lake and the forest. The roof and the entire 5 m wide long side towards the lake are made of glass, which gives a fantastic feeling of space. There is also a sitting area (table with 4 chairs) and at the lake there is a barbecue area. Nearby are outdoor toilet and outdoor shower.

The evening is a very special experience as you crawl into the soft beds and look up at the starry sky through the glass roof. You see the beautiful wilderness lake through the wall of glass. Enjoy the silence and the rush of the wind!

3 wonderful days in a beautiful forest environment and nice cycling on cozy small gravel roads! The best of everything you could wish for on a vacation. Many lakes to swim in addition. Awesome to sleep in the glass house! However, there were a lot of mosquitoes and gnats and on a sunny day it will be very hot in the glass house! I can really recommend this bike package.
