Pick your piste! Up here in the mountains we have a host of slopes that are perfect for all the family. Slalom, off-piste and park – just strap on your skis and go! There’s plenty to do in the summer too. Our sparkling rivers and mountain lakes are teeming with fish for the keen angler while hiking enthusiasts can step out along the magnificent Royal Trail of Kungsleden, through the Syterskalet mountain pass.
Ski with the stars! Well, not quite, but you can race down the very slopes upon which our global athletes – Ingemar Stenmark, Anja Pärson, Stig Strand and Jens Byggmark – learned their world-class downhill skills. Kind gentle glides or sharp speedy thrills, the choice of slope is yours. In summer bring your fishing rods instead of ski poles as it’s only a short walk to the excellent fishing waters of the River Tärnaån and the great views of Ryfjäll mountain.
There’s pure gold running through the heart of Hemavan Tärnaby, a place forever linked to some of Sweden’s finest skiing champions. Three Olympic golds, one silver and five bronzes have all come out of this little village in the far north of the country, along with 12 World Championship golds, three silver and five bronze medals. Anja Pärson, Ingemar Stenmark, Jens Byggmark, Stig Strand and Bengt Fjällberg are just a few of the names who have put Hemavan Tärnaby on the international map, and the pride in their achievements is etched into the destination’s very soul.
