Ögeltjärn nature reserve is located south of Gullvik's sea bath about 14 km outside Örnsköldsvik. From the E4 roundabout at the southern entrance to Örnsköldsvik, you can follow the road signs to Gullviks havsbad. Parking is available at Gullviks Havsbad. The stretch up to Ögeltjärn is very easy, while the path to the top requires a little more effort but is well worth the effort. From the campsite to the top of the mountain it is approximately 2 km.

In Ögeltjörn's nature reserve, in addition to the mountain, there is also a small interesting pond that is drained down through a moist wet swamp forest with lime-favored flora. Seven different orchid species are found here, including the young forest lady (Epipogium aphyllum).
