Hemavan Tärnaby, set in the Swedish mountains in Lapland, is famous for its superb ski slopes and that alpine skiing legends Anja Pärson and Ingemar Stenmark grew up here. This is true wild country, with downhill, off-piste, heli and crosscountry skiing for all skill levels and is ideal for family trips. In this frozen wonderland dog-sledding, ice-fishing and snow scooter safaris are great ways of discovering this gateway to Vindelfjällen, one of Europe’s largest nature reserves.
It’s as light in summertime as it is dark in wintertime in this part of the world. Summertime brings with it constant daylight and the local flora and fauna burst into life. You can experience this and other natural wonders at the Alpine Botanical Garden in Hemavan and at Naturum Vindelfjällen. Or take our advice and take a trip into the wilderness paradise around Hemavan Tärnaby and enjoy the hiking, trekking, cycling and excellent fishing.
