Sylarna is a constant eye-catcher for most who visit the Jämtland mountains. The lodge is at the base of the mountains and since 1897, people have been finding their way and staying here a few days in conjunction with attempts to attain the summit.
The mountain lodge is a hub for hiking and skiing in the mountain world of western Jämtland. Most plan one extra night at Sylarna to climb or view the beautiful mountains.
At 1,762 m.a.s.l. and located in Norway, the peak is the goal for most people, though Tempel Valley is a good alternative if you want to avoid heights or if the weather worsens. The name comes from the closest sacred feeling that presents itself when you get furthest into the valley and are surrounded by steep mountain sides.
A classic alpine challenge is to go and climb the Syl traverse – a ridge hike that includes several of Sylarna’s peaks.
If you come to Sylarna during the winter, there is challenging and steep alpine skiing.
