Bärra Blueberry is our very popular and mischievous mascot who lives in the Blueberry forest in Orsa Grönklitt. Bärra originally lived in a regular forest where there were lots of fun stuff to discover and eat like ants, moss, berries, and lots of mushrooms.
Since Bärra Blueberry from the beginning was an ordinary little blueberry, he and his friends had to be very careful when they were out in the forest to play. They were just like regular blueberries, very small and close to the ground. Every day they risked being stepped on by children- and even eaten! Therefore, Bärra and his little friends quickly learned how to hide in the blueberry bushes from all the dangers in the forest.
One day Bärra met a kind little gnome in the forest. They started talking about life in the forest and Bärra told the gnome of his and his friends’ problem with the children. The nice gnome then had a brilliant idea, how about Bärra becoming a GIANT blueberry?! Bärra thought that was a great idea! And that is how Bärra came to be as big as a human.
Now that Bärra was so big he did not have to worry about being stepped on or even eaten while playing in the Blueberry forest. The gnome and Bärra created this super fun skiing area deep in the forests of Orsa Grönklitt and decided to name it the Blueberry forest!
Here you get to meet Bärra and a whole bunch of his fun and silly friends. Meet little tree blueberries that are keeping an eye on all the kids that come here, hang out with snowboarding blueberries and maybe some singing ones! Everyone is welcome here!
Catch a glimpse of the Old Berry that has lived here the longest and who keeps everything orderly and neat but watch out for the silly trollberry who throws snowballs at everyone that passes by!
Bärra also has many fun and exciting animal friends, like the snow leopards, polar bears, and wolves.
And did you know that Bärra does not speak like us humans? He only speaks the secret blueberry language! But he loves hugs and high fives and has many friends here in Grönklitt that can translate for him.
Sometimes Bärra is out exploring other places, like ski resorts or camping resorts so keep an eye out for him when you travel. He loves an adventure and would love for you to join him!
