– 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.
