      Vättlefjäll is a natural reserve north of the city of Gothenburg suited for MTB, Hiking, Running, Camping (not in caravans), Swimming and general wildlife activities covered by "Allemansrätten" which allows you certain activities.

      MTB is "restricted" such that you are not allowed to ride bicycles on marked walking paths or trails, but no such walking paths or trails are marked either on a map or out on the trails. Either way, please do observe right of way to people on foot. In almost all cases however, people on foot will step aside when they notice you riding MTB. Just make sure to thank them and wish them a nice day.

      While you are allowed to have a campfire, the locations you may do so are restricted to prepared locations only. And be aware that in summer time, there may be a open flame prohibition in effect so make sure to check for that first before starting a campfire etc.

      Vättlefjäll är ett naturreservat norr om Göteborg som lämpar sig för MTB, Vandring, Motionslöpning, Övernattning (inte husvagn), Simning och generella vildmarksaktiviteter som täcks av Allemansrätten.

      MTB är "begränsat" såpass att du inte får cykla på markerade gångstigar och leder, men inga sådana gångstigar eller leder är utmarkerade varken på karta eller i terrängen. Oavsett, var snälla och lämna företräde för fotgängare.
      I så gott som samtliga fall så stiger fotgängare åt sidan när dom uppmärksammar att du kommer på en MTB. Se bara till att tacka dom och önska dom en trevlig dag.

      Det är enbart tillåtet att grilla/elda på speciellt förberedda grillplatser i naturreservatet och kontrollera om eldningsförbud råder under sommaren innan du startar en brasa.
