We arrange special tours for people with disabilities, such as a guided tour covering the history of the wood pulp mill.

Where can the bus stop/park?

Buses can drop off passengers at several places: by Kafé Ada, by Elektricitetshuset and by Träsliperiet. There is a parking area for buses by the sawmill, around 250 metres from the café and the entrance.

Restaurant/café - what is offered?

Coffee is available at Kafé Ada, phone 046 (0)505-411 37 - we can also pass on orders for coffee. Kafé Ada offers ice cream, buns and cakes, sandwiches, salads and hot sandwiches. The café can also cater for lunch guests if they are booked in advance. The area is limited to about 30 people indoors and 40 people outside. Groups may also drink their own coffee if they prefer.


There are customer toilets, including a disabled toilet and a baby changing table, by the entrance to Träsliperiet – about 80 metres from Kafé Ada. Forsviks Bruk is also a fantastic place for bus passengers to stretch their legs - so take the opportunity and have a break and a short walk!
