The well known vacation village Oltjärn is situated right in the middle of one of Sweden's most beautiful landscapes, in wonderful Härjedalen. Surrounded by forest and with a grandiose view of th Sonfjället National Park, Which was founded 1909 for the protection of brown bears.
In our area you will find many with fish well populated waters, where both beginners and experts can land their very own dream-fish. Here you will find trout, arctic char, whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus), perch, northern pike, and even the European grayling, which by the way is the symbol-fish of Härjedalen. The 19 year old record for trout has recently been broken and the new record, at least for the time being, is a respectable 7,56 kg, ca 16 pounds!
Attractive, cozy and well equipped cottages stand at your disposal so you can enjoy a memorable vacation, right in the wilderness, but with all the comforts of home. You will also find a laundry room for your convenience and stores for all your needs are just a short distance away. Directly around the corner you will find our own tarn, where you and your children can fish up both trout and char for your evening dinner.
In our beautiful nature and countryside you may experience many unique activities. For instance bear-, beaver-, moose- and why not a "water-wolf"- (northen pike) safari. We even offer ATV excursions into the wilderness, including guide and base instructions about how to safely drive such off-road vehicles. Last but not least: we can also offer you to play golf on an excellent 18-hole golf course!
In the winter we change from ATV to modern and powerful snowmobiles, so you can experience the feeling of what real freedom is all about. naturally we make breaks in a snow-duggout, with BBQ on the campfire, while sitting on reindeer hides and enjoying life at it's best. Icefishing in the winter is a "must do"! Your catch can thereafter be prepared in our own restaurant for a delicious dinner.
In April, when the spring-sun is warming up the area, the bears are leaving their dens together with their den-born cute cubs. Frequently we encounter their tracks in the snow while driving snowmobiles. With some luck we can even see the cubs tumbling around in their first snow or slide playfully down the snowy hillsides.
We even arrange snowmobiler excursions custom-tailored especially for ladies. Together with initial basic instructions for safety's sake. A snowmobile trip in the evening, with dinner fixed on the campfire, right in the middle of nowhere, belong to the most exciting activities you can ever experience. Our only illumination is the shine and glow from the fire torches and the silvery moon. If we are lucky, we may even see northern lights light up the sky!
We have our own well preparated ski-track system for cross-country skiers, some tracks are even illuminated for evening and night-time skiing. After an excursion you may want to regenerate your body by taking a sauna or a bath in an outside barrel filled with warm water. If you thereafter roll yourself in the snow or take a dip in the icy tarn, you will feel so full of life like never before!
In the summer you find lots to do, it's simply a "paradise on earth". In the autumn, nature is at it's best, offering a rich harvest of all kinds of mushrooms, cloudberries, wild raspberries, blueberries and lingonberries. With help from our experienced staff we show you how to conserve the berries and make delicious juices and jams, without any chemical preservatives.
We even arrange day excursions to Western Härjedalen and a bit into Norway, for instance walking tours to see wild flowers, orchids and other flora, or to collect golden chantarelles.
For groups, businesses and companies we offer fully equipped premises to execute successful, giving and memorable meetings and conferences.
We can also offer rental of all types of skiing equipment, ATV's, snowmobiles and boats. What we ourselves don't have, we can arrange for.
