Tofta is a coastal landscape with remnants from the Bronze Age. The ancient remains are located on a ridge extending between Kråkerösund and Myggstaviken. The nature reserve is easily accessible and offers ample opportunities for exploration, swimming, and fishing.

A treeless landscape teeming with flowers

The nature reserve is characterized by treeless heaths, but in the shelter of the mountain, there are also pasturelands. Here, you can discover botanical treasures such as common spotted orchids, fir clubmoss, and bugloss, while meadow sweet clover thrives on the grazed meadows. Different species of stonecrops and thrift grow in crevices and rocky areas. In August, the reddish-violet color of the heather adorns the barren rocky terrain. Myggstaviken, south of the reserve, is renowned for its rich birdlife, and several species of diving ducks and other birds nest in Tofta Kile.
