Tofta is an easily accessible nature reserve with good opportunities for walking, swimming, fishing, just a short stroll from Tofta Manor. Those interested in nature will find that Tofta nature reserve offers diverse and easy walking paths across flowering meadows and bare cliffs. From the cliffs, or neighbouring islands, you can enjoy a swim or simply the ocean views. Tofta is a coastal landscape with remains from the Bronze Age. The remains are located on a mountain ridge between Kråkerösund and Myggstaviken. The nature reserve is characterised by treeless heaths, but grazing paddocks can be found where the mountain protects the land. You can find botanical treasures such as marsh orchid, small lousewort and adder’s tongue. Strawberry clover grows on grazed beach meadows. Different types of stonecrop and thrift are found in cervices and mountainous terrain. In August, the purple red of the heather covers the rocky terrain. Myggstaviken south of the reserved is renowned for its rich birdlife and several species of dabbling ducks and other birds breed in Tofta inlet.

Lycke Golf Course is carefully nestled into the beautiful landscape around Tofta Manor and is a seaside/park course in a tranquil and attractive environment. The location by the sea and with the beautiful nature surrounding Tofta Manor has enabled us to create an extraordinary golf course boasting a higher quality than most Swedish courses. The course enjoys a long playing season and is, above all, a challenging and diverse course for both average and elite golfers. The course is designed by Johan Henrikson and Helen Alfredsson. Helen’s female perspective means that Lycke is a course equally enjoyable for women and men. The seaside location means more hours of sun and less rain. The wind is an additional factor to master – just as it should be on a coastal course. The golf restaurant in the club house Lycke Golf Course runs the restaurant in-house. Fully licensed and offering a golf menu with good prices. Lunch of the day during the golf season. Sells filling sandwiches and refreshments such as baked goods, coffee, drinks and more. Large outside terrace overlooking the course and Manor, as well as inside lounge areas.
