Safety and rules
The national park of Skuleskogen is a large, hilly forest area where mobile reception often works poorly. The strenuous and rocky terrain can be challenging for both humans and their four-legged companions. An other thing to keep in mind is that the national park has special rules when it comes to making a fire and pitching a tent etc.
