Name Mountain Walking in Sweden

Would you like to go to Sweden and see an outstandingly beautiful area where there are mountains, a lake, elks and bears?
Read on...
I'm a British guy based in both England (London) and Sweden (Vasteras) and have a part share in a cottage in the Swedish ski resort of Lofsdalen which is in the county of Jämtland. In the Summer the area comes alive with backpackers and mountain bikers. I would like to invite a few like-minded types that like a challenging terrain to walk in yet not extreme..with a comfortable holiday cottage to come home to that is centrally located.

The cottage has three bedrooms, a cosy living room with a woodburner, a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher..and even its own sauna at the back of the bathroom.

Lofsdalen is a village that has a few shops and restaurants plus a couple of bars all just a short walk away.

I'm looking for 3 or 4 (plus me) for 4 full days of walking. Lofsdalen has a stunning backdrop of a mountain and lake. The footpaths are well marked and are of various length, including one of 30km. I have skiid a lot in Lofsdalen as well as walked in the area and it's very rare to hear English spoken but all the locals speak it and are very friendly.

So if you'd fancy coming along, get in touch... Lofsdalen is around 3OO miles from Stockholm (Vasteras) airport. (RYAN AIR)

The logistics of this are made easier as I have a four wheel drive car that's permanently in Sweden, properly maintained and insured.

IMPORTANT! You need to be prepared to take your turn in cooking. I have run trips like this before (testemonials available) and besides, cooking is fun in the cottage. The living room is open plan with the kitchen in one corner so you needn't miss out on banter.
I will supply all bedding (pillow cases, quilt covers and sheets) so you need only bring a towel with your lugagge so that you can be well within the 10kg Ryan Air hand baggage limit.

COST: A Ryan Air return flight between Stansted and Stockholm (Vasteras)
An £80 petrol/food kitty/ (any left can be given back in sterling)
(I will be in the kitty of course!) Included in the kitty will be wine and beer.
£100 towards accommodation (this is non-profit making on my part and goes towards helping my yearly upkeep costs. It will include a full cleaning service before and after we leave.

Trip one: Sat 31st July to Aug 5th I will be on the outbound flight myself.
Trip two: 14th Aug to Aug 19th (I will be meeting you at the airport in Sweden).
I hope to arrange a pre-meet, a get together over a couple of drinks somewhere in Central London before anybody books their flight. This is so everyone can get to know each other first... A confirmed Ryan Air booking will be assurance that I know you're commited .The outstanding amount can be collected on your arrival in Sweden. I have lots of pics of the area but whilst you are logged on, check out Lofsdalen for yourself. It's a great base for exploring an area renowned for its beauty.

Carla Hey Ossy I am really interested in this adventure. I am moving to London 1st July so would be good to meet up if you want to discuss plans further. I would call myself reasonably fit, but not sure what the terrain for this hike is like? What is the actual distance you would be covering over the 4 days? Carla
