Hike at Idre Fjäll

The tranquility and presence found on the hiking trail is difficult to find anywhere else. The silence coincides with the rippling of the river rapids and the song of the birds in the trees. Every step you take brings you a little closer to those mysterious mountains far away.

Our guided tours

Hike with wild foods and outdoor cooking

Our nature has a variety of edible plants and berries to offer. Through our hike, you will learn which plants and berries can be picked and eaten from the mountain nature during the summer season.

We hike through the magnificent mountain environment until we settle down at Fjällfina's hut. There we learn how to start a fire by using materials from nature and cook together over the open fire. Hopefully we will find berries along the hike and make a delicious dessert from them and enjoy the dessert together with coffee that we boil in a pot directly over the fire.

Exclusive hike: wild foods and outdoor cooking

This summer, Idre Fjäll is organizing an exclusive hiking experience in collaboration with outdoor chef and wild food expert Elle Nikishkova from Elles Utemat (Elle's Outdoor Food). Our forests are full of nutritious plants, herbs, berries, and mushrooms, and the Swedish right of public access gives us the opportunity to harvest edible treasures from the wilderness. During this hike, you will learn to recognize the most delicious wild foods in the forest and on the mountain. Elle will share insights and show edible mushrooms, plants, and berries. We'll forage as we hike, enjoying enchanting forests and majestic views.

The hike leads to our outdoor cooking camp where we'll learn to light a fire using natural materials and cook a meal together over open fire using the ingredients we've gathered in our baskets. The day concludes with a campfire coffee workshop where we'll learn to brew a delicious coffee over an open fire, and to accompany the coffee, we'll indulge in a tasty dessert made with our freshly picked berries.

Hiking knowledge

5 things to consider before going on a hike

1. For beginners and hike with company

Idre Fjäll recommends hiring a guide to get a nice experience on the mountain without having to worry about the map or getting lost. If you don’t want to hire a guide, there are plenty of hikes that are suitable for beginners, many of them are marked and some even starts at the square. Ask the front desk staff to show you some trails.

Preferably don’t go on hikes on your own, and always tell someone who is still at home where you are planning on hiking and for how long you plan to be gone.

2. Don't forget the map

We recommend the map “Fjällkartan” in scale 1:50 000 for mountain hiking. It gives a good overview of creeks, height differences and trails but makes it easy to navigate as you get a good perspective over the terrain as a whole. You can buy “Fjällkartan” at Ica among other places.

The map “fjällkartan” is now also available as an app – perfect to plan your hike and to get a good overview. But remember that there is not always phone reception in the mountains and that your phone battery might discharge. Always bring a paper map with you.

3. How far can I expect to hike during a day?

3 kilometers/hour is considered normal hiking speed in terrain with a packed backpack. In that pace you will have enough time to enjoy the scenery and to take the occasional picture. You can, of course, hike both faster and slower. If you walk a lot uphill you have to calculate with more time, especially if you have a heavy backpack.

A full day’s hike is typically between 10 and 15 kilometers in one day, depending on experience, terrain and the amount of packing.

4. Packing

Here is a list of things that are good to bring during a days hike in the mountains:

  • A warm jacket
  • Water-resistant clothes
  • Water bottle
  • Some extra food
  • A map (and the knowledge to use it)
  • Compass
  • Blister tape

5. Hiking boots

Before going on a hike it’s important to make sure to have good shoes. Sore feet and blisters can ruin an entire hike and therefore it’s important to properly walk in the shoes before going on a hike. Start with walking in your hiking boots at home, then successively extend your walks until you have walked the same distance in them as your planned hike.

“Hiking has an incredible depth. There are everything from those who do trail running and run on shorter day runs to those who go on a short hike to sit on a tree trunk and watch the scenery while drinking a cup of coffee from their backpack. The beautiful thing is that they all have equal joy to gain from nature, they just have different hobbies and prerequisites.” – Anders Ejdervik, author of many hiking books, among them Grövelsjöfjällen – gränslösa fjäll.
