Just a few kilometers from Hemavan you find Jofjället, with great fishing, and nice trails for hiking or running.
There are marked trails - recently renovated - starting from Hemavan, Portbron and Västansjö. Gieravardo - the mountain of flowes - is a part of Jofjället that is recommended to visit with a botanical guide. Contact visitor center Naturum in Hemavan for more information of guided walks.
Hemavan is what mountain life is all about. A smaller village near Vindelfjällens nature reserve, it has a vibrant cultural landscape, with an active settler and Sami life where the reindeer business still has a prominent role.
Hemavan Fjällstation, former SMU Fjällgård, is a drug free alternative for individual guests, families and groups. The facility offers a relaxed environment and several rooms were you can spend time together.
