Hammarstrand like Hollywood – The enormous letters at the top of the mountain immediately remind you of the Hollywood letters. From our B&B you can hike towards the letters. The hike can be a bit rough and steep but once you’ve reached the letters the view is amazing.
Churches of Raguna county – Raguna, the county which Hammarstrand is part of, has many old churches dating back to the 16th century. Many still have original wooden carvings, midieval art and wooden bell towers making them woth a visit.
Thai pavilion – In 1897 the Thai king Cholalongkorn visited Sweden. While travelling north he visited Ragunda county, 100 years later a thai temple was built to honour the king of Thailand. Every year on the 19th of July a festival is organised honouring the Thai king’s visit to Sweden, there you can enjoy thai food, dancing and music.
Döda Fallet – The death falls is the result of Sweden’s biggest natural disaster. In 1796 Magnus Huss made a technical design error while redirecting the Indalsäven river which resulted in the drainage of lake Ragunda.
