Departure of ice

Starting with an insignificant, discreet trickle, then swelling to a furious, overwhelming flood, the untamed savagery of the rushing snow melt carves deep wounds in the iron hand of the ice. Jäidenihtökevät, and with it the return of life, is here. An almost unnatural landscape begins to reveal itself to us. Although still partly veiled in the tenacious cloak of winter, it is unmistakably ready to display itself in full bloom.

We enter a time of contradictions, a time when most adventures take place in ankle-deep snow, while our foreheads glisten with drops of perspiration under the glare of the high-travelling sun.

It is a time when the cool and pallid face of the winter-withered landscape meets the warm, colourful palette brought forth by the sun. Old meets new. Everything around us is transformed afresh. And our interest and curiosity are awakened by the tantalising scents escaping from the restaurant kitchen; the mouth-watering hints of dried game in concert with morning-picked, first-of-the-season vegetables.

As the days succeed one another, we see the dark veil of winter being pulled aside as the power of the sun increases. The same sun that the Sami people have looked upon as their Father since time immemorial. The returning sun of Jäidenihtökevät.


Alpine Touring/Randonee

To make your way up to the mountain tops with the help of ascension skins under your skis and your own strength and energy is an experience that will leave you with lifelong memories.

Cross-Country skiing in unspoilt nature

The mountains that surround Fjällnäs are excellent for wild-skiing.


From Fjällnäs there are several snowmobile tracks that make it possible to explore the complete mountain system around Fjällnäs, Funäsdalen and Ramundberget.
