Nature is all around us, with plenty of space to pitch a tent. Here in Sweden you are free to do so anywhere in nature, as long as you do not disturb or destroy anyone or anything. Read more here. Unfortunately we cannot offer camping on our property.

Dress code

We wear what makes us feel comfortable, and we expect nothing else from you. Please be advised Knystaforsen is situated in the middle of nature, why we recommend casual footwear. We cook over an open fire and from time to time invite our guests to join us outdoors. This can leave a smoky remark on your clothing, just the way we like it. With that in mind, you do not need any special clothes.

Covid 19

Our dining room is large with only few tables, so when you come to visit us, there will be plenty of room between you and other guests. Obviously, we keep a high standard of hygiene. We get tested before each opening night. If you wish to have Knystaforsen for yourself, this is possible (except on Fridays and Saturdays) for minimum 10 people paying full price (dinner & wine pairings). Request to book a private dinner via email or phone: +46 76 021 35 40
