Sånfjällets National Park

Sånfjallets National Park was established in 1909 and is one of Europe's oldest national parks. The park has several trails which are accessible all year round and is on my list of places to visit over the next year!

Sånfjället is a graceful mountain (1278 metres) that rises in lonely majesty above the forest of  central Härjedalen. The mountain and the surrounding forest are well-known as among the most important bear habitats in all of Scandinavia. It is also a place of unusually distinct and well-preserved geological formations created by meltwater from the last ice-age glacier.
