Tour Skiing in Ullådalen

Tour skiing in Ullådalen is a wonderful way of spending a day. However, choosing the right trip for your enjoyment and endurance level is important. We’ve listed below three of our touring favorites in beautiful Ullådalen that work for different levels of adventure and skill.

# Lillåstugan

Längd: 1.9 km (one way)

The trail from Ullådalen’s upper parking lot to the traditional Lillåstugan Waffle Hut is quite an easy tour and there’s a great reward at the end. Waffles have been produced in Lillåstugan for generations and they also serve a variety of food, pastries and hot drinks. The trail varies a bit from slightly hilly to leveled so make sure you know how to break and ski uphill. Skins or other types of skis that don’t require wax is the best choice for children.

How to Get there: Park at the upper parking lot in Ullådalen and follow the signs towards Lillåstugan (aim towards Mullfjället and follow the trail over Ullån, keep to your left and follow the signs to Lillåstugan).

An Alternative Route: To make the tour to Lillåstugan longer, you can take a longer route on your way there or on your way back, or both. If you wish to prolong your tour – take the long tour to Lillåstugan: Till Lillåstugan långa turen. If you just wish to make it longer on your way there, follow the 5 kilometer trail north, pass Ullån, keep to your left uphill towards Mullfjället (the opposite of Åreskutan) and then follow the signs to Lillåstugan. For a longer tour on your way back to the parking lot, take the same route in the opposite direction. Remember to keep to the left track if you are going in the opposite direction.

# Ullsjön & Stendalen

Length: Optional

The trail starts from Ullådalsstugan but can be reached from both the lower and the upper parking lot in Ullådalen by following the Skutskjutsbacken (see the ski slope on your right from the parking lot) upwards. There you’ll find a marked trail that goes through the forest and heads straight between Mullfjället and Mt. Åreskutan. The first 5 kilometres is a shared track with oncoming skiers so beware and keep to the side of the track. After following this trail for a while, you can chose to turn right towards Stendalen or straight ahead towards Ullsjön. If you choose Ullsjön, continue on the trail marked ‘Skutan Runt’.

Ullådalen offers great touring.

# Skutan Runt

Length: 19.2 km one way

This is a serious day trip with varying and, sometimes challenging, conditions. The trail starts at Ullådalen and ends in Åre Björnen on the other side of Mt. Åreskutan. The beginning of the trail is the Ullsjön and Stendalen tour (see above). After, you continue into the birch forest after Ullsjön before reaching an open terrain on the northern side of Mt. Åreskutan. The highest point of the trail is 900 meters above sea level and there’s a beautiful view of Kallbygden from the backside of Åreskutan. The trail climbs upwards after about 12-13 kilometres and ends with a long descent to Björnen, which can be quite a challenge if you are tired.
