Located in Sweden’s southernmost alp destination Grövelsjön, Storsätra Fjällhotell rests comfortably at around 750 metres above sea level, surrounded by three national parks. It is also the southernmost Sami village and hosts pasture for reindeer. “Here, you can wake up to see 200 reindeer outside the window!” explains hotel owner Lars Ericson. The unexploited area is great for not only reindeer spotting but also cross-country skiing, with around 100 kilometres of prepared ski tracks starting just outside the hotel – ideal for those who want to train for Vasaloppet – as well as trails leading as far north as Kiruna and into Norway.
