Fjällnäs, located in the Swedish highlands, is the last outpost of civilisation on the winding road to the Norwegian border. You can be here, looking out across a completely untouched wilderness only a few hours after leaving the stress and bustle of modern city life.
Despite our isolated location, it is surprisingly easy to get here, especially if you fly to Trondheim, Norway either direct (from many European cities) or via Oslo, and rent a car from there. The journey to Fjällnäs goes along winding roads in a beautiful and spectacular landscape and takes approximately three hours.
Another excellent alternative is to land at Røros, Norway. Once in Røros, it is a 45 minute transfer to Fjällnäs. Although the drive is short, the scenery is magnificent. And the only other living creatures you are likely to see on the trip will be reindeer searching for food.
