More winter fun
When your feet ache, the legs are worn out and you have had enough of skiing for a while you may set off on other winter adventures. Vemdalen offers quite a few other outdoor activities in and around the destination.
Fettjåfallet is a magical waterfall, 60 metres tall that has the best ice from January to March. A short 3 km walk through beautiful forests takes you to the frozen falls. No previous experience is necessary; the guide will show you what to do. Ice-climbing is suitable for adventurous individuals, and you can book a half day or full-day trip.
Walking with the help of snow-shoes is an ideal alternative for those hoping for a walk in the mountains in winter; an alternative for those unaccustomed to cross-country skiing. The sensation with snow-shoes on is perhaps best described as walking on water – a miracle indeed! You walk on in deep snow without sinking and the waddling rhythm will entice even the most discerning adventurer to find genuine peace of mind. read more about snowshoe hiking here!
Take a snowcat up on the fells to places where you otherwise may not have made it. You can choose to sit inside the snowcat or sled behind on skis, so it is suitable for all ages. The snowcat takes you to two different resting place that both serves coffee, hot chocolate and waffles. The ride goes from Vemdalsskalet to Jaktstugan, or from Storhogna to Samevistet.

Winter fishing is great fun and a wonderful experience. In Vemdalen and the surroundings are easily accessed lakes and tarns, frozen over and scenically embedded in the forests, fells and wilderness. Many fishing waters can even be reached by car; the rest of them by snowmobile. Several of the tarns have fine shelters with campfire facilities for a barbecue.
