Snowshoe walk to Örnbo - there where the eagle lives


Forest hiking to an abandoned mountain farm. Here everything has remained as it has left the last inhabitants. You can feel the hard work of the formally Swedish mountain farmers.

Tour description

From the parking lot we go up and down along on the northwestern shore of Lake Gautsträsket. After one mile  we cross over a small bridge the creek "Bissanbäcken" which leads down into the valley from Bissajaurje. Immediately thereafter provides an excellent opportunity for a first break. With a lot of love here have been an old water mill reconstructed in which you can still inspect the grinder. A spacious grill hut completes the installation. After relaxing rest it is now time for the other way up to a signpost with the inscription "Örnbo" which suggesting the walk to the forest on the right. However, in winter this way is rare

committed. The marking on the trees is not always consistently. After another mile through dense forest and around a few cliffs a first stable building comes into view and you reach the farm area.

A more convenient way of ascension offers the former driveway.


No special requirements. Something condition is advantageous.


Hot drink and picnic belong to the backpack. Snowshoes and poles are provided.
