Vojtjajaure chapel is situated in the valley of Björkvattnet, about 35 kilometer from Tärnaby.
The chapel was built following a national appeal, and was opened in 1933. At that time the Björkvattnet valley had a considerable population of farmers. Along the road is Tärnaby-Hemavan’s oldest settlement, Lövlund, established in 1824.
The church seats about 225 people. Regular church services are held four times a year in addition to a variable number of baptisms, marriages and funerals. The cemetery is adjacent to the church.
Hemavan is what mountain life is all about. A smaller village near Vindelfjällens nature reserve, it has a vibrant cultural landscape, with an active settler and Sami life where the reindeer business still has a prominent role.
We are a small and welcoming hotel with all the activities right outside the door. We have comfortable and functional hotel rooms, a restaurant with price winning food, conference room, apartments, hostel and a sauna with panoramic view.
