”The Vedung mountains, this was the high light of the walking experience.”

The cabin is surrounded by three nature reserves!

There are only two permanent houses and about 20 widely spread private holliday cabins in the village.

The wilderness starts around the corner. The watercourse Storfjätan can bee glimpsed from the cabin. 3 km south it widens like a small oblong lake. You may bee able to see moose, fox, reindeer and traces of beaver, sometimes also traces of wolverine. The surrounding area has nature protected species and 300-400 years old pine trees.

Peaks around 1100 meters altitude. The cabin is surrounded by several nature reserves. Three km west Städjan-Nipfjällets nature reserve with the well known peak Städjan. 5 km east there's an extensive area – Vedungsfjällens nature reserve with peaks at 1100 meters altitude. The peaks can not be seen from the cabin. Read articles about the peaks (translated by google): Sömlingshågna, Fonnfjället and Stor-Uckuvålen.

A good map shows reliable information about trails, cabins, helplines etc

We recommend scale 1:50 000 or 1:25 000 for hiking, because they are more detailed. Buy for example a printed map of Idre & Lofsdalen here.
