The Njupeskär vattanval is 93 meters high and freezes in Winter. Old Tjikko is a 9,558-year-old Norway Spruce.The national park is a 30 minute drive from Särna. While hiking always keep an eye out for any moose or deer, you may be able to spot one.
The national park was dedicated in 2002. It measures 38,500 hectares (385 square kilometres), two-thirds of which is bare mountain heights and heath.
The national park is the closest to Särna, however there are other trails you can follow. For example the Linnaeus trail which starts at the Sjöstugan, cross the bridge over the river Grövlan and follow the trail to Sylen/Svukuriset during the hike you pass reindeer fence and the border between Sweden and Norway. Another amazing hike is towards Städjan, the most famous mountain peak in Dalarna (1131 meters above sea level).
Idre Fjäll is the biggest ski mountain in the area and the list of activities in Idre Fjäll is endless; dog sledding, horseback riding, snowmobile tours and of course skiing and snowboarding. Or you can go to a large sports center with indoor pools, bowling and a sports hall. These activities are family friendly and are fun for both children and parents. After an active day you can eat in one of the restaurants or enjoy a massage.
In Fjätervålen you can find 18 long, wide pistes with about 400 000 square meters glide surface and nearly 2 mil groomed cross-country trails. It’s definitely worth a visit. When you're visiting Fjätervålen we recommend you to visit the Heating Cottage, where you can grill your own sausages and enjoy your meal with an amazing view.
When the snow arrives, you can find downhill skiing for the whole family at the alpine slopes in Grövelsjön. The area offers over 100km of prepared cross-country training and excursion tracks, and there are marked winter trails for longer tours. Expect great children’s activities, combined cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobile tours, or guided and Sami cultural tours.
