Summer Activities

Fishing

Grab your hiking boots, the mountain bike or a canoe and get out there!

When the snow and the ice of the long winter disappear, it’s time to change gears and prepare for a full range of summer outdoor activities. Hiking tours in western Härjedalen range from family-friendly day-trips up to adventurous hikes with overnight-stays out in the wild. You may even choose to ascend the Helgas, Sweden’s southernmost glacier, as one of your trip highlights.

Tänndalen is expanding its summer trails and rents out mountain bikes for those that cannot bring their own. And if you want to explore the uncountable rivers and lakes and maybe go after some trout, char or grayling, you may rent a boat or canoe. Check out the website of Funäsfjällen for more information about all the many summer activities.

Fishing at the mountain lake Malmagen

When staying at Strandgården you have a lake filled with arctic char directly outside the doorstep! There are many good spots where you can cast from land or wade a bit into the water. Bring your belly boat with you, if you own one – or rent a boat either from us or at the neighboring campsite.

Note: the map for Malmagen inside the fishing guide is not up to date!
The lake is open for fishing directly at our beach.

Do you need a fishing guide?

We have translated the whole Fishing Guide for the destination Funäsfjallen for you! Here you find all you need to know about fishing for trout, artic char or grayling in the ponds, lakes and rivers all around us.

The fishing guide includes maps, tips for fly fishing, spin fishing and ice fishing as well as information about rules, regulations and where to get the right fishing license for each water.

Winter Acitivities

Prepare your skis and snowboards or jump on a snowmobile to explore the highlands!

Tänndalen just got elected as the “Best Skiing Area of Scandinavia 2019/2020” together with 5 close-by resorts that all are part of the destination Funäsfjällen. And there are plenty of good reasons for this! With the “Fjällpass”, the ski pass for Funäsfjällen, you get access to 34 lifts and 118 slopes – transfer through the whole area with the ski bus included. And in case cross country is more your thing, you are welcome to explore 300 kilometres prepared trails or even the 450 kilometres of marked natural trails. Take the lifts up to the mountain tops, ski down through the valleys and cross the frozen lakes… our area is a genuine paradise for skiing enthusiast. Oh, and did we mention the snowmobile tours yet?

The ski resort of Tänndalen is only 3 kilometres away from our place and cross country trails are passing by just a few hundred metres from our doorstep.
More information as well as maps of the slopes and trails can be found at the websites of Tänndalen and Funäsfjällen.

The Wildlife of Sweden

Meet the neighbours: discover the wild animals of Scandinavia.

We ourselves love and deeply respect our wild neighbours. Living in an area with such a rich and vital wildlife is a gift that we enjoy sharing with our guests every day.

Besides a great number of unique birds, you will most probably get to spot foxes, beavers and “the king of the forest”, the moose. At the Myskoxcentrum in our neighbouring village Tännäs you have the opportunity to say “hej” to some of the last muskox of Scandinavia.

If you happen to come around between mid of June and mid of August you may book one of the rare spots at a photo safari for the brown bear.

Visit Sweden - and Norway - at the same time!

Take a day trip to Norway and visit Røros and Trondheim.

Our little bed & breakfast lies in the very west of Sweden, only a 45-minute-ride away from Røros in Norway. We highly recommend saving one day of your vacation to cross the border and stroll along the alleys of this scenic UNESCO-protected town.
 
If you take another extra hour in the car you can visit the Trondheimfjord, too.
 
Spicing up your wilderness vacation in Sweden with a bit of Norwegian culture and fjord exploration – doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
 
 

This is Lapland, actually!

Ren

Welcome to the southernmost part of Lapland - reindeer spotting included.

The winter is long, cold and dark. The summer is short, chilly and bright. Well, if that was really all there’s to it, why would the Sami have chosen to live in this part of Northern Europe a couple of thousand years ago?
We got the wonderful chance to share this amazing part of earth with them and we could probably tell you much about what makes it so special.
However, we rather recommend coming by and sensing the spirit of Lapland for yourself.

If you want to learn more about the Sami culture you can visit one of the three “sameby” in our region, the “Fjällmuseet” in Funäsdalen or the Lopme Laante Sami-park that opens during summer season on the top of the Funäsdalsberg.

Wellness in Fjällnäs

Book a visit at the day spa next door!

If you feel that you need to add a little exclusive extra to your holdays in the mountains, we recommend visiting the MII GULLO SPA at the neighbouring Fjällnäs Hotel.

After a short work along lake Malmagen you can enjoy special treatments, visit the sauna, jump into the fresh water of the lake and then relax at the hot tub from where you have a magnificent view over the mountains.
