There are many great spots for a snowshoe tour in the Swedish mountains. From the small mountain village Edsåsdalen, 20 km from Åre, there is an easy accessible summit route one shouldn’t pass up on.
Starting from the village of Edsåsdalen, a marked winter trail winds its way uphill, through silent forests, over frozen lakes and snow-covered rocks wrapped up in the glow from the soft winter sun. During some smaller steep parts the claws of the snowshoes kick in making the incline barely noticeable. Upon summiting the peak, 5 kilometres have been covered and the descent is an even easier undertaking. Along the hike one passes Vita Renen Mountain Station where you can treat yourself with Swedish delights for lunch.
To make something extra of the tour, choose a day when Vita Renen is open for dinner (usually just once a week) and let the moon guide your way when you walk down from the mountain station. Look for tracks from moose and fox and don’t forget to stop, look up at the starlit sky and enjoy the silence.
