Beneath a distinctive rock on the mountain slope about 2 km further up along the Ruttjebäcken valley there is an ancient Sami grave. The coffin resembles an ackja (= Laplander’s sledge) and contains what is probably the body of a woman in her thirties.
This newly developed area with apartments is situated approx. 150 m from the lift Solkatten in calm and relaxing surroundings.
It is approx. 1,5km to the supermarket, petrol station and the lift Centrumliften.
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.
