Erska Lunde, a well defined rock and boulder ridge, lies in the centre of the Mellby Valley to the southwest of Sollebrunn. It’s overgrown with large pine and spruce, with the latter dominating its eastern part. Oak, beech, ash, rowan and Swedish whitebeam can also be found. Buckthorn and red elderberry are among its bushes. On the ground you’ll find lilies of the valley, red raspberry and blueberries. Among the birds you can find redwing, wood warbler, pied flycatcher, garden warbler and green woodpecker. In the northern section of the area is an old gravel pit and a scout cabin next to the ski slope.

The Erska Church and cemetery lie in the middle of Erska Lunde, a handsome round building surrounded by pruned oaks. In spite of its high location on the ridge it’s well hidden by the surrounding forest. An iron age cemetery lies immediately west of today’s cemetery. There are a number of paths and small roads, as well as a floodlit trail.
