Fysingen is one of the county's best lakes for birding—close to 100 species of birds nest here. There is a bird observation tower and it's easy to get around on the broad wooden walkways. Here you can see birds such as the northern shoveler, garganey, harrier and common rose finch. On early summer evenings, you can hear the honking of the Eurasian bittern and the song of the nightingale.

The beach meadows along the lake are protected for birds and highland cattle graze there. Water buffalo graze the reserve in the summer. The area is also culturally and historically significant; one of Uppland's largest burial mounds, Nordian's Mound, is located here—a grave field with over 190 archeologically important sites.

During the winter, Lake Fysingen is perfect for cross-country skiing and skate sailing.
