About the accommodation

STF Undersvik is located in the middle of the agricultural landscape of Hälsingland, close to both a river, forest, and mountains. The location next to the river Ljusnan, between Järvsö and Orbaden, is incredibly beautiful and you will feel a soothing tranquility wherever you are on the premises.

After careful renovation by Uppsala Diocese, STF will operate the old diocesan estate in Undersvik as a guesthouse and hostel from September 2023. Here, you are surrounded by green areas, hiking trails, and water, with opportunities for activities such as cycling, fishing, swimming, and paddling right around the corner. But we also hope that you will be able to come here to relax and just be for a few days. Enjoy rest, cozy up by the fireplace, delicious meals, and leisurely walks. Come here and do nothing – at your own pace.

It is easy to get here both by public transportation and by car. There is also the possibility to be picked up (up to 8 people) by an electric minibus at the train station in Vallsta/Järvsö or by bus at Highway 83.

The kitchen at Undersviks Matsal follows the seasonal availability of ingredients and serves simple but well-prepared food with clean flavors. Inspiration comes from old craft traditions and genuine sustainability thinking. The philosophy is to use less but better meat and fish, as well as more vegetables.

The accommodation consists of five buildings and offers 133 beds. Everything from double rooms with shower and toilet, family rooms, and multi-bed rooms, as well as the possibility to rent a private house with a sauna. There are several conference rooms that accommodate between 4 and 100 people, as well as common areas, a large veranda, playground, soccer and volleyball fields, barbecue area, and a lovely sandy beach within walking distance. Eventually, you will also be able to participate in, or why not organize your own, courses in areas such as cooking, outdoor rights, and yoga.

Welcome to Hälsingland!

    With us you can holiday with a clear conscience. We work actively to ensure that our whole business is sustainable – from how we work together with local businesses, producers and personnel from the countryside, to our environmentally friendly electricity supply.  

    Sustainability and reuse are always the buzz words and goals during our renovation. We always strive to make as small an impact as possible on the nature around us, to preserve what is there. Fix it, rather than buying new.   

    We are proud to have made the sustainability pledge, which means that we follow STF’s sustainability policy in terms of social, economic and environmental sustainability.  

    Some examples of our green investments
    • Electricity – the power for our accommodation comes from renewable energy sources.  
    • Food – when you eat with us, you can be sure that our staples are KRAV-labeled or organic ingredients.   
    • We use environmentally friendly cleaning agents as much as possible.  
    • We have water-saving flushing taps, showers and toilets wherever possible.  
    • We reuse our interior as much as possible.  
    • We offer charging posts for electric cars in the farm’s parking lot. 

    How you can contribute as a guest  for green investments
    • Choose an environmentally friendly way to travel to significantly reduce the emissions from your holiday. You can get all the way here by public transport!  
    • Choose environmentally friendly food. Support the local community by eating locally produced food and shopping with our neighbors in the area.
