Hiking Eldorado

Welcome to Fjällsjö Hiking Eldorado! We hope you will enjoy your stay and enjoy our beautiful nature as much as we do. We have a diverse landscape with lots of water and forests. Walk up the mountains, pass by lakes and along the river in our ancestors footsteps. We believe that we have Sweden´s inlands most beautiful hiking paths, please come and try for yourselves!

With Backe, Jansjö or Silsjönäs as a base point you will have access to sixty kilometers of hiking paths. The advantage to hike here is that it is so easily accessable and perfect for day excursions. Stay in one place and discover new paths every day -there are plenty of paths to explore!

The Fjällsjö region is rich in Culture History and here you can find remains from the Iron- and Bronsage like for example cooking areas, hunting ditches, rock paintings, remains from tarproduction and settlements. It is possible to discover some burnt or cracked stones from old fire places. Keep a lookout for our informative signs along the paths, or join in for a guided tour.

We wish you an enjoyable stay!
