    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you fancy a 10 kilometre walk for something unique, this could be it. Gröndalen is as its name says a green valley which makes it easy to walk in and you will be rewarded with some of the best ice age geology in the country. The most famous thing being the sandy pyramids left by the ice.

    An ice age "door" into the valley with a scenery that makes you think you are in Lapland and not Jämtland the way the fells look almost "square" instead of rolling. Of course we couldn't walk the 10 kilometres there on this trip but I really hope to come back as what I saw of it at the "Naturum" exhibition intrigued me. Here is a view from nearby Nipan were we went, on the road to Lunndörren.

    On the way to Vålåsen you pass Vallbo which is no more than a handful of small farms. Most villagers are reindeer herding and the village is famous for its tiny same church. A couple of the farms are also used as B&Bs and several walking trails start here.

Vålådalen Transportation

    Bus from Undersåker (along the E14 where the turnoff is) leaves just after 8.00 in the morning as the night train from Stockholm has arrived, and the bus then trundles the 27 km to Vålådalen. Expect some nice views of Åreskutan and other fells along the way. It returns at 14.00 or thereabouts (depending on school holidays) and anything later needs to be booked in advance.

    Favorite thing: That has to be done on one of these genial constructions common in the Swedish highlands - a moving bridge. A bit rolling before you've found your pace but then you can stop in the middle and enjoy the scenery.
