  • Just outside of the village of Särna (coming from Sälen), a tower was built from where you can see the entire area. In the center of town, there is a lovely wooden church from the mid 17th century, known as the 'Old Church' (Gamla Kyrka).
  • 20 km outside of Särna, lies Fulufjäll National Park. Sweden's largest waterfall (94 m high), the Njupeskär, is located in the park. A well marked trail of 4k m leads you to the waterfall and back to the parking lot. Wooden walkways are built over the more wet areas along the trail. This is a perfect outing for inexperienced mountaineers. Along the way you can enjoy the varied plant life: 'hjortron' (Cloudberry) in the open areas and in the woods lingon (Cowberry) and blueberry. The woods are a mix of pine and birch. There are bears, wolves and a particularly large type of moose living in the reserve.
