Winter is magic at Storsätra mountain hotel. The area is blanketed in pure white stillness, creating an almost haunting quiet. The short window of daylight affords skiing—cross country trails start right outside the door—as well as ice fishing and almost every winter activity imaginable. At night, the clear high sky glitters with starlight, and with a little luck, puts on a northern light show. During the holidays, guests are treated to the romance of tradition, with sleigh rides, torchlight processions and even a visit from Santa.
