Adventures & Experiences

At Torgåsgården Fjällgård you live in the middle of nature's most fun playground!
There is plenty to experience all year round for those who love outdoor life, forests, mountains and adventure.

You can choose to experience the Sälen mountains and the nature around us on your own or join us on a guided tour. Below you will find suggestions for experiences, activities and adventures. Of course you can book a guided tour with us even if you are not staying here at the farm.

Guided tours

We know that it's not always easy to find your way, to find your way out or to find what you want to experience. For those who want to have a guided tour and learn more about outdoor life, local history, nature and experience the hidden gems of the Seal, it is possible to book a guided tour.

We at Torgåsgården are very keen to make sure you get to experience what you want, whether it's mountains and wide views or deep forests and magical scenery. We adapt our guided tours to your wishes and abilities. Our goal is that everyone should be able to come with us into the forest and up the mountain. Ask us and we will be happy to plan a guided tour for you and your party.

Food outdoors

We cook tacos or hamburgers together in the forest, on the mountain or outside on the farm, depending on your wishes. If possible, we cook over an open fire, otherwise we use an open kitchen. All ingredients are sourced locally. Ask for price.                     

Would you rather have coffee? One of our mountain dogs will bring you coffee from the local farm bakery Hjulslätts and we will go to the small waterfall in Valla and have a coffee there. Lots of cuddles and good coffee promised! If you prefer to go with your own dog or without any at all, that's fine too. Ask for price.

Forest bath

Take in nature and open your senses. Breathe, reflect and experience the sounds and healing power of the forest. Minimum 2 guests, maximum 10 guests. Approx. 2 hours. 295,-/person.

Nature photography

The forest is home to all five major animals of the Swedish fauna, elk, björn, wolverine, lynx and wolf, in addition to forest birds and lots of small game, a rich flora and trees that are several hundred years old. On the mountain, the views take over and the setting and rising of the sun offers all the most beautiful colours of the sky. In winter, the northern lights dance in the sky and the stars and moon light up the snow to cast shadows. You'll find inspiration and motifs wherever you go.

Fishing

With countless waters around us and a lake in the garden, there are many opportunities to fish. In some waters there are stocked game fish too. Of course there are also put n take waters. The nearest 3 min by car from Torgåsgården. Of course you can ice fish in winter. We sell fishing licenses and maps.

Berries & Mushrooms

In mid-July the cloudberries begin and not long after that the blueberries come in full force. Forest raspberries and lingonberries, chanterelles and other mushrooms. There are endless bogs and tall woods to search for the forest's treats.

Cross-country skiing

The southern point of the Kläppens älvspår starts about 900 m north of us. Tracks are often made here and the track is known for its high quality. From Kläppen there are more tracks. Up on the mountain you will find classic routes such as the calf round and to Hemfjällets kaffestuga. https://www.skidspar.se/

Alpine skiing

The varied and family-friendly slopes of Kläppen are only 5 minutes away from Torgåsgården. There's skiing to suit everyone. From long green slopes that you can ski from the top down to steep black slopes where you get up to speed. Sweden's national arena for snowboarding is in Kläppen, need I say the park is epic? Sälenfjällens slopes in Lindvallen are about 30 minutes from us.
