The Jämtland mountains
The mountain world of Jämtland lies only a night train away. With old forests to the east, a rolling landscape in the central areas, and alpine massifs such as Sylarna and Helags to the west. In Jämtland, you can choose easy or adventurous, popular or unknown.
The majority of hiking trails go over vast mountain moors. Located open and high, this landscape means that you can walk and see in all directions. This also means that this area is prone to the forces of nature. Still, it is never particularly far to the nearest mountain hut or mountain station.
Våladalen and Storulvån Mountain Stations are jumping off points to vast mountains, where well-visited trails are appreciated for their moderate difficulty. Choose Jämtland’s triangle if you want a sure classic. Bunnerfjäll is easy hiking despite its lack of marked trails.
Vålådalen Nature Reserve is extremely diverse. Here, old forests that are perfect when the weather advises against a tour in the bare mountain region. More sporadic inhabited trails and huts are found in the fish-abundant mountains of Anarisfjäll and Lunndörrsfjäll, with the characteristic u-shaped Lunndörr pass.
High alpine Sylarna is for you who like challenges. Even Helags is impressive, with Sweden’s southernmost glacier and bashful arctic fox. South-east of Helags, the valley of Ljungdalen comprises a third entry point to mountain world of Jämtland.
