Gafsele Lappland Hostel offers you a tranquil base for every kind of holiday. Activity packed or relaxing. We have listed up some posibilities below. Check them out and book.


Within half an hour drive you can enjoy riding a snowmobile through never ending forests and on amazing frozen lakes and rivers.

We advise you to book a guide too. He will get you to the most beautiful places and back again.



Everywhere around us are walking paths. It is now possible to start a  hike at he hostel, walk some days through untouched nature, sleep in a hut on your way back to your comfortable room and our nice facilities. Finish your hike with an evening in our big sauna and wellnessrooms.



Sight seeing in Swedish South Lapland is something else. Enjoy a BBQ in a grillkåta, or pay a visit to Offerhällan. A steep cliff where once the old and the weak were sacrificed. If you do not like hights have a look in Vitterhuset. A rockformation that is used as an open air theatre every augustus, when operasingers take posession of this extraordinary theatre in the midst of a wetland. Just a little bit further away a museumvillage is kept alive by volunteers. Torvsjö kvarnar (Torvsjö mills) has old machinery that works on the power of water that runs downhill. We can go on and on, but just this last one we have to mention: in Avasjö you will find a small traditional farm that was found as the last occupants left it. A girl lives there in summer to tell visitors about the old ways of farming in this area. And don't forget to have a traditional fika. Coffee with a bun. You can have one in Vilhelmina for example. When you are there visit the second hand store in the old center of the town and be shure to leave the place with an absolute find. We have lots of other suggestions for our guests. No need to get bored unless you want to.


Both alpine skiing and crosscountry skiing are closeby.

Alpine skiing is about 20 to 30 minutes away. At one place it is possible to hire a skiing outfit.

Do you like crosscountry skiing? Just put on your skis and ski out of the main entrance right on a crosscountry track.



The hostel is situated on the banks of the river Ångermanälven. In the whole area are boats for hire. Fishingpermits can be bought through the internet.

On your way you will find many places to land your boat and have a BBQ picknick.
