Summer holds endless possibilities for hiking and trail running. A favorite tour is Renfjällsrundan, trail number 220, that leads to the top of Mt Renfjället with a view that stretches over rolling mountain landscapes and towards Mt Åreskutan. In the hiking guide for Södra Årefjällen there are maps and descriptions and at aretrails.com you find digital maps of routes and tracks for hiking, running, biking and horse riding.
As the waters teem with char and trout, mountain fishing in the lakes around Edsåsdalen is an adventure we highly recommend. Lake Hensjön is situated only 1,5 km from the mountain lodge and except for the easy accessible fishing it is also a charming spot for hangouts and swimming on warm days. There are also boats that can be rented.
Deep in the silent forests a vast array of treasures and treats are hidden and autumn is the season for foraging. Chanterelles, lingonberries, juniper berries and meadowsweet... Tighten your laces, bring a wooden basked and head out!
Do not pass up on the art trail “Konst(ig)-stigen” during your visit. The trail start right outside Dalens Gård Mountain Lodge and is a small but extraordinary family adventure.

A Bit of History
The history of the lodge dates back to 1913 when it was a magnificent hotel during the last period of mining at Fröå Gruva , next to Mt Åreskutan. The mountain rests in a trough of copper ore and the first finds were made in the Fröå area in 1744; mining soon began and was carried out over three centuries. After the mine closed in 1919 the house was sold and placed in Edsåsdalen, along the old village road a bit further up the slope. Settlements of the foundation can still be found. In 1930 the house was repositioned to where it stands today – welcoming guests to Dalens Gård and Edsåsdalen.
