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

~ Micheil van der Hoeven, Netherlands

The cabin is surrounded by three nature reserves! 

There are only a couple of permanent houses and about 20 widely spread private holiday 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
