Fäbodvägen - Mountain pasture way
The mountain pastures round the Galå Fjällgård are connected through paths and trails. Close to your vacation resort, you will find hiking trails of each degree of difficulty along forestal paths, through virgin primeval forests and highmoors.
One of the most beautiful mountain pastures, Långbodarna, is farmed from June until August. Here you can indulge yourself with exquisite coffee and Swedish waffles which are freshly baked in the wood-stove.

Glenvägen - The way to Glen
On either side of the 16 km long road between Galåbodarna and Arådalen and Glen, you have the possibility of walking or strolling on different routes. In Västra Arådalen, you will not only find the oldest youth hostel of Sweden, but also the starting point for a trip to the Hundshögen - the highest mountain in the Oviksfjäll (see also Mountain hikes). You can take a rest in the midst of nature on the mountain pasture of the same name in Östra Arådalen.
