3 wundervolle Wochen in der Fast- Wildnis!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren letzten Sommer für 3 Wochen in diesem wunderschön gelegenen Haus.

Die Einrichtung war zweckmäßig und es war alles vorhanden, was man zum täglichen Leben braucht. Der große Schlafraum war für unsere 5-köpfige Familie genau das Richtige. Es gab auch viele Spiele für die Kinder.

Das fast angrenzende Vedungsfjället war sehr einsam und wir waren dort stets allein in der Natur bei unseren Touren. Der Berg Sömlinghågna ist ein wundervoller Aussichtsberg, der jedoch nur weglos bestiegen werden kann und reichlich Kondition und Trittsicherheit voraussetzt. Wir unternahmen mit unseren Kindern ca. 10 fast ganztägige Touren in den näheren und weiter entfernt liegenden Fjällregionen. Dabei begegneten wir außer in den Nationalparks nie Menschen, jedoch vielen Rentieren und Spuren von Fleischfressern: zerkratzte Baumstämme, Losung, Bärenfell und Wildsauen.

Als nächstgelegener Supermarkt hat sich Idre bewährt (ca. 50 Minuten Autofahrt einfach!). In Idre gibt es auch alles was das Anglerherz begehrt, sowie mehrere Geschäfte mit Outdoorzubehör.

Die Umgebung um das Haus ist sehr schön, v.a. die Feuerstelle und die Nähe zum Fluss gefiel uns gut.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend, so dass wir auch jetzt noch Kontakt zu ihnen haben. Alles lief problemlos!

Wir werden diesen Sommer wieder drei Wochen in diesem Haus verbringen, auch wenn unsere Anreise mit Fähre fast 40 Stunden benötigt.
