Döda Fallet

              From the campsite is it 15 minutes whith the car or 50 minutes on the bike to Döda Fallet

By a catastrophic mistake, the powerful waterfall Storforsen was dry-laid. The Ragundameer disappeared and a huge floodwave faded farms, watermills and everything that came out of her way. To everyone's surprise, nobody drowned at all.


That all happened within 4 hours on a june day in 1796. It was all the fault of the energetic and insurgent Magnus Huss. This merchant from Sundsvall, also known as "Vildhussen" (Wilde Huss), tried to build a wood-floating canal along the Storforsen, but its dams broke down all the time.

 

Since that dramatic day, Storforsen was renamed Döda Fallet (the dead waterfall), a waterfall without water with wonderful rock formations formed by flowing water. Around the 'waterfall' walk paths and there is an exhibition. The area is very steep in some places. Here you can enjoy walking and enjoying the tranquility and nature. There is also an opportunity to have a snack and have a drink after a nice walk.
The process of compensation for the tsunami caused by Vildhussen continued until the 70's of the last century
