Mount Hoverberget is on a peninsula in the southern tip of lake Storsjön, it´s 548 m. a. s. l. and is a landmark for the area. In summer there is the elusive cleft cave in the mountain lit in a multitude of colours, Rämnan – the crevice in the mountain shaping a microclimate for rare flora, hiking paths and the homestead museum with a complete gun smithy. In Svenstavik you can learn more about the elusive monster of lake Storsjön – Storsjöodjuret at the observation center.

The whole are boasts from a range of cultural and musical events and you see traces of all the geniuses who have been active in the area, for example at the woodworker´s center Wikners in Persåsen with hotel, cabins, conference and restaurant and at Hovermo farmstead museum.

In winter there is skiing in Gräftåvallen and year round you can enjoy the foods of Hävvi in Glen inspired by Sami cooking.
