This magnificent valley is surrounded by dramatic slopes, with the mountain Slottet to the north, glaciers to the west and the characteristic Tempelpinacklarna to the south. The valley is characterised by its stark beauty in both summer and winter. In summer you can see the wide rock field that stretches over the bottom of the valley and in winter everything is covered by glistening snow. Sheltered behind a rock or sitting in a sun pit, this is the perfect picnic spot!

Alpine ski touring around Sylarna
The high mountains in the area around the mountain station offer many magnificent runs in untouched snow. There are great opportunities for majestic and challenging runs in steep environments in the Syl massif, but there are also some easier runs from the peaks Herrklumpen and Vaktklumpen. The high alpine environment around Sylarna is peculiar in that it is so far south in the Swedish mountains!
