Beneath a distinctive rock on the mountain slope about 2 km further up along the Ruttjebäcken valley there is an ancient Sami grave. The coffin resembles an ackja (= Laplander’s sledge) and contains what is probably the body of a woman in her thirties.
Hemavan Fjällstation, former SMU Fjällgård, is a drug free alternative for individual guests, families and groups. The facility offers a relaxed environment and several rooms were you can spend time together.
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.
