Rogen Nature Reserve
The Rogen Nature Reserve is one of Sweden’s unknown gems when it comes to wilderness. In any case among Swedes. More and more foreign visitors are travelling here every summer. They are attracted by one of Scandinavia’s best areas for paddling and mountain lake fishing. Hiking in the ancient pine forests is a grand wildness experience.
Inland ice is the architect behind this unusual landscape. The ice created long ridges of stone and rock. A pack of small lakes lies between the ridges, as well as the large Lake Rogen. Pine, spruce and solitary mountains shoot up from the barren ground.
If you want to paddle a canoe or kayak, the choices are almost unlimited. Many start at Lake Käring, with canoe rental and a motor road from Tännäs. Even though more visitors are finding their way here, you can easily find your camping site. The water is full of fish, so bring along your fishing rod.
STF has two huts in the Rogen area, located along the hiking trail between Grövelsjön and Tänndalen. There are also paths going westward to Norway and north-east towards STF’s hostel in Tännäs. In the beginning, you will looking down to carefully walk along the stony trail. But when your body has become accustom, you can look up and enjoy the lakes shining between the pines. It is never far to the nearest swimming spot.
