“Interesting sight in winter!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Amazing to see a waterfall half-frozen (owning to the fact that December was not as cold as it should) and the little information signs along the way made the walk much more interesting!

If you are going in the winter, do stop by the Tourist Station before going on the trail as they do have spikes that you can strap onto your shoes so that you can walk better on the icy paths (just remember to return them when you're done).

“Beautiful area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Had a lovely walk, the partially frozen waterfalls were much better than we expected. Pay the 3kr entrance at the shop and you get basic crampons - which you'll need as it's very icy. Had lunch in the café which was very good, traditional and very calorific:)

“Beautifull iced waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We loved the (short) walk to the Tannforsen waterfall, it was all iced up, we had seen it in summer and were back here in end march/beginning of April and had another encounter.
Be very careful, since the paths are very slippery!

“Worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Right in the middle of the Jämtland highlands, about 15 minutes by car from Åre, you can find Sweden's biggest waterfalls. The panorama view is idyllic, but the both wide and high waterfall itself is dramatic. Rather easily accessible on foot and several points of view to find delight in.

Payment is required for parking the car. They also have a small shop with typical local products, which is worth a visit.

“Quite impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I've been several times and it's always a joy. Very loud and large, nice walk through the woods and you get nice pictures out on the walkways. Not accessible if you are not able-bodied.

Visible from the top of Åreskutan (if you know where to look). Plenty mosquitoes in summer and the café seems to be open only erratically. Don't go hungry, unless you bring some food along.
