In the heart of Swedish mountain biking in the heart of Bergslagen, Lars Jans Stugan is directly connected to the MTB trails in Bergslagen Cycling. You are in classic ore mining and iron mining areas and the cottage belongs to an old mountain man's farm. Here you live who likes to cycle on trails in the forest perfectly and no time is wasted to get to the trails.

The cottage offers 19th century feeling, the garden is leafy and a large wood-burning sauna belongs to the cottage. If you need to shop for food, the distance is about two kilometers. It is close to the well-preserved mining village of Pershyttan, where iron handling has been conducted since the 1300s. If you want to learn more, you can choose on a guided tour or to walk the signposted cultural trail that goes around the village. A few more kilometers away is Nora with its charming wooden building. A city that is actually also known as Skoga through the author of the poet Maria Lang (and she was actually called Dagmar Lange). A few years ago, an elegant filming of the books was also done with Tuva Novotny and Ola Rapace in the roles, and of course idyllic Nora as a recording environment.

Lars Jans Stugan can accommodate up to four people. There is a mullet toilet indoors and an outdoor shower with hot water as well as a shower in the sauna building. You can prepare the food on a real wood stove or on a hob.
