Tjörnarpssjön (Tjörnarp lake)
(see image above)
The lake is a ground-water lake that’s fed by at least two springs.
The lake offers fishing, swimming, and boating. A walking path around the lake leads to many grill and picnic areas. It’s also a pleasant place to just sit and listen to the sound of the waves. Fishing cards can be bought in Höör tourist center (Höörs turistbyrå) and at Custon road-bar (at road nr 23, near Tjörnarp).

180 million years ago, there were at least seven active volcanoes and today the area around the big lake "Ring Lake" (Ringsjön) is crossed by two fracture systems with outcroppings of basalt lava.
Outcroppings from old volcanos, active 180 million years ago.
Quiet area: "Svale mosse"
"Entrance Moss" (Svale mosse) is a well-protected marshland that the municipality (Höörs kommun) has set aside as a “quiet area”. The idea is that quiet should have its place too, and noisy companies are not allowed to operate in the area.
The plant life of "Svale mosse" is typical of a marsh, including cross-leaves heath, cloudberry, and deer grass.
Greylag goose, black-throated loon, and grouse also live in the area.
Directions to Svale mosse:
Starting from the road between Norra Rörum and Tyringe:
6 km from the crossing in Norra Rörum, (12.5 km south of Tyringe), take a left toward Ringhult and continue 3.5 km, to where the road takes a hard right turn at a four-way crossing. Park the car at a reasonable place and continue by foot on theforest road that goes strait forward. Automobil traffic is not allowed on the forest road. The walk to Svale mosse is only a few minutes long.
