Welcome to Gammelbyn

Summer Activities


Take a deep breath

Gammelbyn, our small cottage village in the north of Värmland, is surrounded by beautiful nature. Up here, on a small hill at the foot of Hovfjället, it is wonderful to relax and breathe deeply. From here, the view sweeps over lake Rattsjön and the hills and peaks of Finnskogen towards Norway. A view that frees the mind and soothes the soul.

Winter and Summer

In summer as well as in winter, active vacationers and all those who long for silence and tranquility feel at home in Gammelbyn. In the warm season the surrounding area invites you to go hiking, canoeing, fishing and mountain biking. As soon as the first snow falls, the alpine downhill and cross-country skiing trails at Hovfjället are the main focus of activities.

Individually or for groups

Gammelbyn is perfect for a short or longer retreat from everyday life – whether alone, as a couple or with the family. The 22 small log cabins are surrounded by trees and spacious lawns.
Two barns contain group rooms, an open fireplace and the sauna. These rooms, along with the dining room and kitchen in the reception building, can be rented for seminars, conferences and other events such as birthdays and weddings.
