Gäddeviks Naturreservat

Nature reserve at Lake Lygnern

The nature reserve Gäddeviks Naturreservat consists of two headlands on the southern shore of Lake Lygnern near Fjärås Kyrkby, about 14 kilometres southeast of Kungsbacka in the municipality of Kungsbacka Kommun.

Gäddeviks Naturreservat protects an area of 37 hectares since April 13, 1984. A small area of Lake Lygnern is also part of the nature reserve. The landscape consists mainly of mixed beech forest and the shore of the lake. Some unusual lichens, mosses and fungi grow on the old beech trees. Among them are the rare and endangered species Bacidia biatorina, Metzgeria fruticulosa and Bacidia rosella.

Just five kilometres from Gäddevik is the Fjärås Bräcka Naturreservat. Nature-loving visitors can learn more about the landscape and biodiversity of the region at the Naturum Fjärås Bräcka.
