About the accommodation

The Sylarna mountains are always hovering somewhere in the peripheral vision of those visiting the Jämtland mountains. Their alpine and dramatic qualities have attracted tourists since the 1890s, and these peaks have become a centre for hiking, skiing and climbing in the mountain world of western Jämtland.

Sylarna is an old junction where the trails from Blåhammaren, Storulvån, Helags, Gåsen, Nowegian Nedalen and Storerikvollen converges. At the base of the mountain is Sylarnas Mountain Station where you gather for recovery, interaction and inspiration.

The mountain lodge has around 100 beds in 3/5-bed rooms, three 8-bed rooms and 12 beds in an annex. Hot and cold water is provided in the rooms. Shower, toilet and sauna facilities are in the corridor. The annex Kläppen houses a common room, self-catering facilities and a kitchen. Some of the rooms in the annex accept dogs – these must be prebooked at the mountain lodge during high season.

We serve an organic breakfast buffet every morning. During the day you can enjoy homemade Swedish fika and homemade organic boxed meals. After an eventful day outside, dinner is served in the restaurant from 6 PM. The dinner at Sylarna concists of two dishes and starts with a locally produced cheese and charcuterie tray, followed by the meal of the day. Vegetarian and vegan options are possible to order.

Ski climbing equipment, telemark skis and a selection of sports equipment is available for hire. There is a telephone and an emergency phone.
To see and do
Experiences of the highest calibre await everyone here, no matter what they’re wearing on their feet! The high peaks, steep mountain slopes and deep valleys offer activities and experiences of many types. Climbing Storsylen with its 1,762 metres above sea level has been a goal for many, ever since the first ascent in 1886, and the mountain continues to draw many hikers and skiers.
STF Sylarna is cash free. You can pre-pay your stay, but on site you can only pay by card.

    Read more about our sustainability work

    Sylarna is a magical and unique place in the middle of a fantastic natural environment. The mountain stream ripples and the wind blows along the steep sides of the Tempeldalen valley. Being in this unique place means that sustainability is a core value for us and permeates everything we do.

    The restaurant is based on organic and KRAV-labelled products for biodiversity. The meat we serve is game, but we promote vegetarian options, which are always available, every day of the year. Our vision is for there to be no food waste at Sylarna. We do everything we can to reduce our transportation requirements and we therefore stock up on all goods in winter.

    You can get to us with the convenient night train from anywhere in Sweden. The mountains is one of the places where climate change is being noticed fastest. We encourage all our guests to travel here by train or to car-pool in order to reduce their climate impact. We try to make our food transportation as efficient as possible.

    Our major sustainability efforts


    Sylarna’s restaurant is based, to an as great extent as possible, on KRAV-labelled, organic and locally produced food. Vegetarian food is an obvious choice for us. We always serve a vegetarian option for dinner. The meat served is game.


    In the summer months, food is transported to us by helicopter. In winter we fill our large freezers and stock up on dry goods so that we do not need to fly in anything other than fresh produce in summer. Sylarna’s kitchen tries to minimise the amount of fresh produce it uses. We primarily choose vegetables with a long shelf-life in order to avoid having to fly in vegetables regularly. Our breakfast buffet therefore contains our own pickled cucumber and sprouts instead of fresh vegetables.

    Food waste

    Food waste is an area we are constantly working to improve. Our vision is for there to be no food waste at Sylarna. We find it very important to talk about food waste in order to create increased awareness among both staff and guests. By measuring our food waste daily we can monitor our efforts to improve. We always try to make use of all the food we prepare – if there is food left over in the kitchen after making dinner, it is used to make boxed meals for the restaurant.

    You are warmly invited to enjoy the unique mountain environment and let us preserve it for future generations.
