Welcome to our home! Turistgården Särna was built at the end of the 19th century as a hospital, and after being the village’s doctor’s office and doctor’s residence, it became a hostel in the 1970s. Today we are lifting the building to its former glory days and we are renovating the house with respect for its history. Turistgården is a charming house with large windows, high ceilings and old details.
Here at Turistgården Särna, we have nine lovely rooms with different sizes and character. From the small, cozy single rooms with a view of the garden to the large family rooms with room for four people. Of course we also have lovely double rooms with comfortable beds. The beds are made for you with soft bed linen, and towels are always included in all accommodation prices, as is our good breakfast.
It is also possible to rent the whole house as a group and let us take care of the food! The large garden and common areas make our house perfect for a conference, family reunion or small wedding. Feel free to contact us and we will tell you more!

At Turistgården Särna we focus on the genuine dining experience. Cooking according to what the season has to offer has always been in our DNA and we are delighted to work closely with local producers who provide us with wonderful ingredients.
We bake sourdough bread for breakfast every day and the hard bread comes from the brilliant Skedvi Bakery. Our cheeses and other dairy products come from Hansjö Mejeri and the reindeer meat from Renbiten in Grövelsjön. We make our own muesli and cook our own marmalades from berries from the surrounding forests.
When you stay with us, you can buy a packed lunch to take with you on your adventures. We prepare sandwiches for you on our homemade bread, juice and eggs etc. as well as something sweet for the coffee break. Of course we fill your thermos with hot drinks too!
Our dinner is based entirely on what the season has to offer. In the summer, we base our menu on all the good vegetables that can be harvested and everything that can be picked in the forest around us. The produce that we bring in is always locally grown and we have a good collaboration with farmers and food producers around us. If we use meat, we think it is incredibly important that we know where it comes from, which is why we often serve reindeer meat on the menu. In winter, we focus on traditional hot dishes, such as stews and soups, so you can warm up properly after a long day out in the snow!
In the summer, we have a garden cafe where you can have coffee or lunch, there you can also buy freshly baked sourdough bread and other goodies to take home!
If you’re curious about tonight’s menu, just give us a call! Our menu can also be found on our social media, or click here. Please note that during low season (september-january and april-may) you need to book a table if you want to have dinner here.
Coming up with a fun adventure close to Turistgården is not difficult. The hard part is choosing what to do! But we are here to help you. We also have good contact with local guides in case you prefer to go on adventures with others or if you want to discover more than the most famous guides. A guided tour to the hard-to-reach waterfall Brudslöjan, perhaps? We are happy to refer you to our friend Daniel at Särna Adventures (sarnaadventures.se). We also have maps and guidebooks that you can borrow or buy to plan your excursion in the best way.
