Pershyttan Culture Reserve

Take the vete-ran railway from Nora to the mining village of Pershyt-tan. There is a new visitor centre at the platform that serves as an introduction to your tours inside the culture reserve. Set out on the new walking trails that all start from the same place and are just a few kilometres long. This is where the miners worked. The village is well preserved, as is the grand blast furnace, the deep pits, Lockgruvan mine and the impressive water wheel that powered a 200-metre long linkage.
Go on a guided tour or discover the area on your own. This environment is stimulating for the imagination and there is something for everyone here, young and old.
