In the east, visitors are met by lowland peaks and both mountain birch and coniferous forests. And in the west – barren mountain landscape with wonderful attainable summits on both the Swedish and the Norwegian side. At the heart of the Jämtland and Härjedal mountains are high-alpine massivs. Here we have classic trails, glaciers and magnificent summits – of which the most well-known are probably Helags and Sylarna. And it is, of course, possible here to hike over the border into Norway.

There are endless opportunities for diverse hiking in the Jämtland and Härjedal mountains. You can, for example, follow classic hiking trails such as the Jämtland Triangle and a circuit of Sylarna. Or you may prefer to cross the landscape by starting in Storulvån and ending in Vålådalen, Ljungdalen or Ramundberget. This region has something to offer everyone – from the experienced hiker to the complete newcomer.

Reindeer husbandry is carried out throughout the region, and visitors must show respect for this.
