HIKE

The beech tree forest just south of the village is a nice little hike. And north of The Kungskvarnen Hotel's parking lot, there is an electric light trail of 2.5 kilometers, suitable for training. For longer distances, we recommend Sävsjöleden and Kycklingleden which are located 7 respectively 12 km away from Borgvik. You can go there by car, but taking the bike is also a great idea!
