A fairly easy ride at either mountain bike or road bike. Here are you mostly on gravel road in beautiful nature and may take the opportunity to take a dip in Ljustern or stay and the barbeque at any barbecue place.
Around the lake there are several beaches to choose from. Ljustern Bath with sandy beach and an outdoor gym is beautifully situated next to Säters campground. On Skönvik area there is a small communal bathing and next Säters steam sawmill can swim in a small beach.
Ljustern is generously equipped with resting places for outdoor recreation. Levellers, shelters and barbecue places. Some bridges are wider and have fences, making them more accessible for the disabled. These bridges are also equipped with ladders. Bring your rod if you want to try to angle from any of the bridges. Buy fishing license at the tourist office or the campsite.
