Ammarnäs is close to everything the mountains have to offer. In addition to being a haven for nature lovers in general, Ammarnäs and Vindelfjällen also attract avid anglers and hikers.
Ammarnäs is a genuine mountain village situated in the middle of the Vindelfjällen nature reserve, one of the largest protected areas in Europe. It is also a traditional area for the Sami people. There are three Sami villages, Gran, Ran and Ubmeje, nearby as well as several remains of old Sami settlements. The hostel is in the centre of all this, and was used as a home for elderly Sami until 1968. Today, guests are accommodated in multiple-bedded rooms or four-bedded cabins and have access to a shared kitchen.
The Kungsleden trail passes Ammarnäs and the hostel is an excellent start or finish to a hike between Hemavan and Ammarsnäs.
Lakes and streaming waters offer top-class fishing. In 2008 the Kungsledsrännet ski competition was launched, in cooperation with STF and Ammarnäs IF. The race begins in Hemavan and follows Kungsleden to Ammarnäs.
