We are in Särna, about 55 kms east of the norwegian border. The campground, a Coop supermarket, a gas station, a couple of houses and an old wooden church sum it up. Särna, located right at the Fulufjällets National Park and the lake Österdalälven is a great place for outdoor activities (as there ain’t much that you could do beside that).
The weather has changed and it is now overcast and significantly colder. We don’t mind and after a healthy breakfast with freshly baked rolls and smoked salmon we took off for a hike to the Njubskärs Waterfall and then on to some lakes in the highlands. The nature is breathtaking and we hike on small paths winding through dense forest.
At 4:00pm we return to the visitor center and reward ourselves with a piece of strawberry cheesecake and hot coffee (served by the friendly turkish staff). The timing turned out to be perfect as it started raining immediately afterwards. Särna is only half the fun when its raining.
To make the best out of it and to cure our hunger we opened a bottle of Chardonnay and cooked some fresh pasta. The rest of evening was spent on reading and opening an second bottle before all three of us fell asleep.
