Jämtland’s magical winter; cross country skiing and snowsmobile tours.

Döda Fallet

The dead waterfall is the result of Sweden’s greatest natural disaster. In 1796, due to a technical design error in diverting the Indalsälven River, Magnus Huss drained Lake Ragunda. The flood that swept through the Indalsälven Valley destroyed homes, boats, trees, mills, sawmills, bridges and fishing facilities. The damage caused by the disaster was enormous. As a result, Storforsen disappeared and Döda Fallet was a reality.

You can take impressive hikes in and around the area. Because large areas are dry, you can see the effects of the power of the flowing water. Worth the effort!

In the summer, there is a café with beautiful views and theater performances in the open-air theater. For more info: www.dödafallet.se

Thai pavilion

In 1897, Thai King Chulalongkorn visited Sweden at the invitation of Sweden’s King Oscar II. This included a trip to Jämtland to study sawmills. 100 years later, people were still so impressed by his visit that they decided to erect a memorial to it. It has become a magnificent building, with 24-carat gold leaf and mosaics, which looks very special in the middle of the birch forest.
