The story of Aske

Long ago, just north of Nipfjället, on a starry spring night when the full moon was at its highest, a little reindeer was born. The spring night was silent and still when suddenly the forest lit up. A herd of reindeer slowly began to wake up, thinking it was morning. It looked like sunbeams and suddenly the night became bright. It was magical moonbeams that shone from the moon down on the herd, the rays traveled from reindeer to reindeer and finally stopped at the newborn little reindeer calf. The whole herd gathered in a circle around the newborn reindeer. That night they gave him the name Aske - the Sami name for moon.

Years went by and Aske grew up and became a big reindeer. The magical moonbeams had given Aske special powers - he was the bravest and kindest reindeer of them all. When any of his reindeer friends got scared, Aske always helped with encouragement.

Playing with the children at Idre Fjäll was Aske's favorite thing to do, and instead of eating leaves and lichens, he would rather grill hot dogs and drink juice. Aske wasn't like any other reindeer, he was friends with everything and everyone - from the trout in Burusjön he used to swim with to the lemmings in the forest below Städjan he used to play hide-and-seek with.

When the rest of the herd was out searching for new grazing lands, Aske always stayed at Idre Fjäll. There were always fun adventures around the corner here - like skiing, climbing, swimming, cycling, and of course, playing with all the children! If you're at Idre Fjäll and see the moon shining in the sky, it's Aske replenishing his powers. It doesn't happen every night, but keep an eye out, because you might also become even braver from the magical moonbeams.

Do you want Aske to come and visit you in your lodge?
