5 days of walking in Långfjället nature reserve (Sweden) / Femundsmarka nasjonalpark (Norway).
This expedition leads us in five days through the fjälls (mountains) around lake Grövelsjön. The fjälls around the lake are part of the most southern part of the mountain range in Sweden continuing all the way up to the most northern part of the country. Here in the southern part the fjälls aren’t as high, nor steep as in the far north. Nevertheless they are real mountains and their beauty, the silence and wilderness are stunning!
During the trekking we sleep in a tipi-tent, by doing so we experience maximum freedom. We can adjust distance and pace to the capacity and wishes of the participants.
This makes this hike especially suitable for you if you’re not used to this kind of walking holidays. It is a great step into these kind of adventures – perhaps on your own.
Also for families with children it is an opportunity to leave the common trails.
On the last day of our hike we arrive at STF Fjällstation Grövelsjön Here we enjoy an excellent dinner and well deserved, comfortable bed.

Walking / trekking for five days in the mountainous are around lake Grövelsjön. The lake is situated in the most northern part of the province of Dalarna in Sweden and partly in Norway. The fjälls around the lake are part of the most southern part of the mountain range in Sweden continuing all the way up to the most northern part of the country. Here in the southern part the fjälls aren’t as high, nor as steep as in the far north. Nevertheless they are real mountains and their beauty, the silence and wilderness are stunning!
In five days we will walk around the lake and experience the nature, wilderness and stunning silence. We stay the night in a tipi tent and will probably during the days not experience too much human civilisation. Only some fellow hikers on the trails, or perhaps some Sami reindeer herders. Here we need to take care of ourselves and can intensely enjoy the nature, beauty and silence. Our tour takes around the lake on two sides of the border.
Depending on conditions and the participants we can decide how long we want to walk every day. Nevertheless we do circle the lake, so there’s a minimum distance to walk in total. Our last day we arrive at STF Fjällstation Grövelsjon for dinner and good sleep!
This hike is suitable for everyone with a normal health and that can freely move in rough terrain.
The hike is adjustable to the demands and capacities of the participants. Plese contact Scandinavian Hiking if you have further questions.
Walking and camping in the fjällen (mountains) even on trails can be challenging, especially if it’s your first time.
Also the fact that you will not meet running water, or electricity can be challenging. Some adjustment to the situation and stamina will be needed.
Every participant is asked to help with cooking and doing dishes.
