Wel­come to the tab­le mountain area!

– Mag­ni­fi­cent expe­ri­ences in a world-uni­que lands­cape sha­ped by time

It is always clo­se to power­ful natu­re expe­ri­ences thanks to a num­ber of cha­rac­te­ristic lands­cape types. Here you will find three uni­que envi­ron­ments such as the pene­pla­ne with its flat cliffs, the tab­le mountains that with their vari­ous rock lay­ers rise over the plain and ice age depo­sits that cre­a­te an incom­pa­rab­le lands­cape. In the­se envi­ron­ments the­re is a gre­at vari­e­ty of habi­tat types. But the vari­ed tab­le mountain lands­cape does not only offer power­ful natu­re expe­ri­ences. The area is full of cul­tural and indust­ri­al histo­ri­cal remains that open a win­dow to the past.

Wel­come to disco­ver the tab­le mountain area!

Here it is

The tab­le mountain regi­on is loca­ted between Sweden’s two lar­gest lakes, Vänern and Vät­tern. Simply put, the area con­si­sts of the Väst­gö­ta Plain and the fif­teen tab­le mountains that frame it. The area of the geo­park stret­ches across 3,690 km2 and nine muni­ci­pa­li­ti­es: Grästorp, Väners­borg, Troll­hät­tan, Lid­kö­ping, Göte­ne, Mari­estad, Sköv­de, Ska­ra and Fal­kö­ping. The bounda­ri­es are set accor­ding to geo­lo­gi­cal values – not the muni­ci­pal bounda­ri­es.
