Situated half way between two major cities, the rural municipality of Knivsta has clear lakes, meadows filled with wild flowers, deep forests, a beautifully located nature reserve and recreational areas with nature trails and skiing tracks.
Lake Valloxen is the special open-air paradise for people living in Knivsta. It is surrounded by beautiful manor-house estates and has fine bathing places. In winter the lake is a paradise for skaters.
The beautiful Kungshamn-Morga nature reserve, along the shore of Lake Mälaren, comprises pastures, shore meadows and forests.
Lunsen Forest is a glorious wild forest crossed by many nature trails.
