Winter at Enaforsholm

Paradise for Winter Lovers

During winter you can experience the wonderful ski trips in our well-groomed trails that begin right on your doorstep.

Either by car or by taxi, the journey is short to Storulvån, where many start at the Jämttriangeln to Sylarna, over Blåhammaren with its famous restaurant-and then back to Storulvån.

Feel free to pack your ice skates with you. There are wonderful skating trails; for example the 9km trail between Enan and Ånnsjön. You can also skate the whole way round Ånnsjön and on other nearby waterways. The ice invites you to skate over its bright reflective surface and fully absorb the stunningly beautiful winter landscape.

Only a short distance away there lies a great variety of slopes and lifts for downhill skiing. If you’re in need of something more child-friendly then take a day to visit Storlien (15km) where the hills have relatively easy slopes to contend with. Another option is to drive the 50 km to Duved and Åre, where you can descend from the pistes after riding up them in Scandinavia’s biggest ski lift system.

A wonderful time of year

Summertime at Enaforsholm is completely and utterly wonderful. When mountain tourism first started gaining pace sometime in the 20th century, it was the refreshing summers here that they sought. Clean air, clear blue skies and the display of its magnificent nature meant that people travelled from all over Sweden to reach the area for relaxation and health reasons. Those are still extremely valid reasons to this day. There is so much on offer here at Enaforsholm; nature trails, swimming, canoeing or fishing in the Enan rapids (you’ll get a free fishing permit with your stay here). Get the full impact of the view from the lookout tower, visit the Enaforsholm Mountain Garden or the roaring waterfalls and caves. For a laidback day trip; go from Silverfallet at the Snasahögarna’s mountain slopes (about 12km easy walking there and back) to Högåsen, Rensjöarna, Handöl, Storulvån and other great sites nearby. Alternatively, you can explore West Jämtland by bicycle. Should this appeal to you then only a short ride away (about 10km) lies a lake populated by Europe’s largest assortment of lakeside birdlife, Ånnsjön.

Enaforsholm Garden

A Mountain Garden worth a look

Many have heard of Enaforsholm because of its famous mountain garden. Here, there is a variety of over 50 different woody plants, trees and bushes, as well as 200 different perennial plants. Enaforsholm’s Mountain Garden was first created in 1949 by Gardening Expert Sven Gréen (1905-1990), but horticultural gardening has taken place here since at least 1885.

The garden was the subject of Professor Börje Lövkvist’s (1914-1994) (Alnarp) studies of plant responses to low temperatures (night frosts) during the growing season. Since 1991, the focus has been to consciously form the garden to demonstrate the plants in the harshest climate zone (plant zone 8) as the location has the most potential for the most optimal conditions in Sweden for them to grow in.

Enaforsholm’s Mountain Garden is managed by the Academy together with Sweden’s Agricultural University (SLU), The Institution for Landscape Architecture Alnarp and the Experimental Department for Northern Sweden’s Gardening, Röbäcksdalen/Öjebyn.

In the garden there is an experimental plantation of assorted woody plants for Northern Sweden. At the end of the garden there is also a wood dated from the 1950’s with several different conifers.

The garden is cared for by horticultural and landscape architectural students at Alnarp, under the guidance of the landscape architecture academician; Kjell Lundquist. The Garden is open all year round, free of charge. Some rarer but also hardier plant species are for sale; of both roses and various perennial plants.
