Vindelåforsens Stugby

Location and atmosphere

Vindelåforsen means the Rapids of the Vindel River and the houses are 200 metres from the roaring river, where the Royal trail comes down to Ammarnäs from the north. The cottages are 10 km from the village by the lake Bertejaure, a tranquil hiking and fishing area. Vindelåforsens Stugby is dedicated to the sustainable development of the Ammarnäs Area and the owner, Urban Berglund can tell you all about Local Management today and the history of Ammarnäs. His wife, Marita Norin, is an artist and has her own exhibition in ‘Skulpturum’. She is the designer of the Swedish ten-kronor coin and author of some books on self development.
