STF Ydre Kalvefalls gård Hostel

More about STF Ydre Kalvefalls gård Hostel

Kalvefall Hostel is in a fabulous location in a valley, at the heart of the beautiful Ydre countryside. The grounds are adjacent to the Östgötaleden hiking trail, and are surrounded by high mountains and dense woods with bridle paths and delightful hiking areas. There are North Swedish horses and Icelandic horses available to ride, as well as a riding school and nature guide. The tranquillity and starry sky you’ll experience here are hard to find anywhere else.

Our “home away from home” cabins have all the comforts and amenities you can imagine. Drängstugan has a fully equipped kitchen that is available to all the guests. The other cabins have a kitchenette with hot plates, fridge, coffee maker and microwave oven. Each cabin also has garden furniture and a barbecue where you can sit back and relax after an active day.

There is a riding school and a paddock in the grounds and we provide trail riding for both beginners and those who have grown up in the saddle. The surrounding woods are rich with both mushrooms and berries for picking in season. If your preferred activity is to let your shoulders do the work paddling a canoe or to go out on an outdoor adventure, there is appropriate equipment for hire. If you didn’t pack riding clothes and need to do laundry after a ride, that is easily organised.

Our restaurant, which is also known as “Krogen i Skogen” (the “Inn in the Woods”), provides a first-class breakfast made up of the finest raw products and dinner. Krogen i Skogen is known for its fantastic Christmas game buffet with locally caught fish, wild boar hams, Christmas sausages and patés that have been processed from wild animals caught in the area.

We welcome both dogs and guests’ own horses. They will be kept company by our Linderöd pigs and Åsen sheep and bees

We look forward to seeing you!
