More than just skiing and adventures
Funäsdalen is not only known for skiing and outdoor activities; it is also the center of South Sami culture. Among other things, the area is home to the Sami theme park “Lopme Laante”, where visitors can learn about Sami culture and industry. The purpose is to educate people about Sami culture and its diversity. The park consists of a large wooden hut which adjoins a reception/shop. Inside, you can eat lunch, enjoy coffee and a snack, and buy traditional Sami handicrafts. There is also a peat hut and a playhouse for the kids. It is easy to reach the park via the gondola.
Funäsdalen is also home to Härjedalen’s Fjällmuseum, the mountain museum. This museum is wonderful for the whole family, with unique collections displayed in beautiful and fun exhibitions. It covers mountain farmers, the Sami people and industrial workers. The kids can climb through the museum’s secret passage and the world of the little people up to the “Säterstugan” cottage, where playful work awaits! A fish-filled lake and cows to milk can also be found here. The museum also has a store and the charming Café Gästis.
