About the accommodation

Björkvattnet lies in Frostviken in north-western Jämtland, 7 kilometres from the Norwegian border. The hostel offers many experiences and adventures all year round. The summer here is magnificent, and the autumn is even better (if this is possible).

Summer is spectacular and autumn is even more beautiful, if that’s possible. When winter slowly turns to spring, the scenery is simply breathtaking.

The hostel is situated in what was once the village school and the fantastic environment that surrounds the hostel gives it a natural boost. There’s a host of accommodation options, from family rooms and cabins to outdoor tents. Guests also have access to well-equipped kitchens and a sauna.

There are great opportunities for fishing in Björkvattnet; during winter Björkvattensjön and a number of small forest lakes offer char and the occasional trout. The area also offers beaver safaris, hiking, jig fishing and boat and canoe hire. Take the opportunity to experience the Hällingsåfallet falls, in northern Europe’s largest canyon.
