Hostel | STF Hostel in Sälen is situated in an area of natural beauty in Sälenfjällen, ca 25 km from Sälen village.

The hostel dates back to the 1850s and is located on Gräsheden – The Grass Heath. The first person to settle here worked as a gränsridare (border rider) and oversaw the border with neighbouring Norway.

The hostel offers practical and pleasant accommodation in double or multiple-bed rooms. There are washbasins and toilets in most rooms. Showers and a sauna are also available as well as a self-catering kitchen.

If you’d like to experience nature on foot, you can walk along one of the country’s longest hiking trails, which passes close to the hostel. Within an hour's drive you can reach Sweden's highest waterfall Njupeskär and most recent national park Fulufjället. The closest ski resort with maintained cross-country skiing tracks and ski slopes is ten kilometres away. Other mountain skiing facilities in the Sälen area can be reached within half an hour and STF Hostel Sälen is also well positioned for day trips to Trysil in Norway.

Nature conservation areas and nature reserves surround the hostel. The closest ski resort with prepared cross country tracks and ski slopes is 10 km away. The other mountain resorts in the Sälen area are within 30 minutes journey from the hostel. Wild game fishing and canoeing can be arranged on Görälven, only 300 m from the hostel. Courses in fly-fishing can also be arranged for groups. Other activities include “animals of prey weekends” guided by our knowledgeable trackers and nature guides, and fishing with a guide.

Reviews

”Trevlig och engagerad värd. Fantastiska omgivningar i underbar natur. Bra kök och utrustning. Så här skall ett vandrarhem fungera. Många når inte upp till denna standard på STF:s boenden och man vet inte det när man bokar. Sålens vandrarhem är ett föredöme för många andra vandrarhem.”
