The forests around Sarna are amazing: the colours of the various kinds of moss vary from white through green to brown. The moss is too soft to walk on so you must keep to the paths. There are many edible mushrooms - I wonder why Swedish people don't pick and cook or fry them. There are some benches in the forest with half-covers over them, so you can shelter from the rain or may even put up for the night, i.e. if you are not afraid of mosquitoes.
We went there following a tip from a receptionist on our campsite. It was on our first visit to Sweden and we were amazed at the scenery: a series of rapids on the river cutting through the rocks. And the wild forest all around. There were many mushrooms in the forest that nobody even thought of picking, even though some were obviously edible. Yet, walking on the soft moss to pick them could have been difficult. My feet literally sank in it when I had a try. The place is called Fjatfallen, as I have found out from a postcard. There is a kind of half-open shelter on the bank, where someone was actually living when we were there. For more pictures of this beautiful area see my travelogue.
The old stave church at Sarna is well worth a visit. Most of it dates back to 1684 with some elements of Celtic art. Note the fencing, which is characteristic of Sweden.
See the interior in my next tip.
The shop sells all kinds of local handicrafts, Dala horses, antlers, elk skins etc. You don't even have to go inside to see it. Also a lot of plastic rubbish inside, but have a look. You might just like something. The troll and the bear are there to attract customers.
What to pay: The prices are average.
