The cabin is situated in the peaceful and secluded village Häggberget between Städjan-Nipfjället and Vedungsfjällens nature reserve. The reserves offers beautiful trails for hiking and skiing and the latter has peaks around 1100 meters altitude. See tips on hiking maps down below.

The wilderness starts around the corner.

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

The watercourse Storfjätan can bee glimpsed from the cabin. 3 km south it widens like a small oblong lake.

You often see moose, fox, reindeer and traces of beaver, sometimes also traces of wolverine and lynx. The area has nature protected species and 300-400 years old pine trees.

Beautiful hiking possibilities.

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

A good hiking map

A good map shows current and reliable information about trails, cabins, helplines etc. The map is available in two different scales and coverage areas:

  • We recommend scale 1:50 000 for hiking, because it's more detailed compared to 1:100 000.

Buy for example a printed map of Idre & Lofsdalen, Grövelsjän & Rogen or Sälen & Fulufjället here.

In Sweden you have freedom to roam.
