Welcome to relive the old retirement age with the traditions of the turn of the century. Here you live beautifully, eat well and ride a bike with a view of the river Ljusnan that flows in the valley. The bicycle tours go through magnificent scenery with beautiful views of the health village.
You live in Solvillan at the enchanting Hotel Järvsöbaden, a villa 150 meters away from the main building located right at the forest edge. All rooms have access to wireless network connection (wifi). The rooms are individually decorated and no amenities are missing. The beds are comfortable and you have toilet / shower and TV in the room. Järvsöbaden is mentioned in White guide, Sweden's renowned restaurant guide. In the beautiful dining room, a classic five course meal with herring table, soup, main course and dessert is served in the evening.
A brand new SPA department is waiting for you
In addition to dry sauna, steam sauna and jacuzzi, Järvsöbaden has recently furnished a cold bath - in the old potato basement. Through the potato throw, water from the hotel's own source in the Öjeberget pours into the cold bath, which has a temperature of 4-8 degrees.
Welcome to Järvsö!
The hotel, which was built as a health resort in 1905, has been in the family's ownership ever since and here the necessary modernization is done with gentle touch to safeguard the hotel's genuine environment and personal charm.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we recommend that you sink into one of the cozy armchairs in front of the fire in one of the meeting rooms. Put your feet up, sink deep into your armchair and let calmness appear. If you arrive early in the day, you can take a short walk down to the village, walk over Ljusnan and visit the Lill-babs museum and enjoy Brostugan's good pastries.
On winding roads through the landscape
The next day starts with a breakfast buffet and then carries it to bike by through the landscape that Carl von Linné once described as a microcosm since all types of nature are here. We recommend that the trip goes to Svedbovallen's cowshed, one of the few live cowsheds with its own production and sale of brass butter, butter and cheese from June to September which is about 20 km away. On the way home you can cycle and see the picturesque little village of Nor before returning to Järvsö again.
Perhaps a trip to Järvzoo attracts where the famous wooden sidewalk, 3 km long, offers a unique opportunity to view nature life up close. Or you just stretch out the tired bike legs in front of one of the fires and enjoy some coffee. Or a massage? In the summertime you are welcome to relax in the garden and swim in the outdoor pool. There is also a nine-hole golf course near the hotel. In the evening you are served another good five course menu.
Breakfast and dinner
Breakfast and return trip
After completing the breakfast buffet the following day, there is the opportunity to cycle to the famous Hälsingegården Stenegård which with its beautiful garden and sale of various crafts attracts many visitors. The countryside around Järvsö offers many beautiful bike trails but if you do not go for a mountain hike then we recommend a visit to well-known and well-visited Järvsö hill - a 390 meter high mountain with barbecue on the top.
If you fancy a different bike challenge, Järvsö Bergscykel Park is just 400 meters away from the hotel and offers challenging, fun and speedy trails that meander over the mountain. Guides are happy to instruct and the bike park is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physics.
Current cancellation costs:

Hi Allan, via Järvsöbaden and Sweden by bike I have received your feedback regarding maps and information on how to cycle to various attractions in Järvsö. I work as a project manager to develop cycling within Destination Järvsö. We are aware of the shortcomings and are working to review various proposals for solutions that will be in place next summer. This summer, we refer to different tour suggestions (depending on what kind of cycling you want to do) on our website www.jarvso.se. We hope we have the pleasure to welcome you back to Järvsö, because just as you have discovered, we have both fantastic cycling and unique sights to offer! Sincerely, Amanda
