Winter Activities

Alpine skiing

From mid-December to late March/early April, nearby Hovfjället offers good opportunities for alpine skiing. The slopes with a total length of 5 km are especially popular with families. Action can be found in the fun park.

Cross-country skiing

Hovfjället offers 20 kilometers of trails (classic & skate), which are also good for newcomers. In the village of Vitsand there is a lighted trail, so you can do some laps even late in the evening. Worthwhile destinations are Rabakkoberget with its waffle café and Röjdafors/Mattila. A lap on the frozen Rattsjön is a great experience on sunny days.

Snowshoe Hiking

In deep snow and terrain that is difficult to access, snowshoes are often the only way to get around. But snowshoes are also very popular on snowy hiking trails. Previous experience is not required. We rent snowshoes (also for children) for groups up to 15 people. Tour map and trekking poles included.


Rattsjön and surrounding lakes offer good opportunities for ice fishing. A depth chart and good tips are available free of charge.


Guided tours with modern Lynx snowmobiles for up to 10 people can be booked from a local cooperation partner.
You need one of the following driving licenses: AM, A1, A2, A, B or T. Prices from 700kr per hour for 2 persons.


Countless forest trails, which are not cleared in winter, are suitable for tours with fatbike. If interested, bikes can be rented from Abbas MTB. Normal winter clothing, such as one wears for cross-country skiing, is usually quite sufficient for this sport.
