Summer 2020, and our original travel plans for this year have totally disappeared due to the Covid19 epidemic. But slowly a new travel plan has developed, to a destination that has been on our wishlist for quite some time: a visit to The High Coast of Sweden. And on the route back home making stops in the Åre/Vålådalen area and the area around Idre. These are two beautiful mountain areas, mostly known for winter sports, but they are also perfect for hiking during the summer months.

Fulufallen: a hidden gem that very few people know about. On a stretch of 400 metres, no less than 8 rapids and waterfalls await you with a total fall height of 80 m. A friend tipped us about this hike, and I am so happy that she did! Thank you Carina!! :-)
We have an app on our phone that records our walks, which is quite fun (the App is called Komoot). The map on the left side is our recorded walk.
If you want to do the exact same hike as we did, you can find the link here: https://www.komoot.com/tour/225488016
Starting point: Drive past Mörkret west of Särna (approx. 30 km). Stop at the car park in Tjärnvallen, right hand side of the road. You will see a sign "Forserna 1,7 km"

Type: loop trails
Length: 3,7 km.
