Cheese from Bruksvallarna

Fra Funäsdalen i Jämtland og Härjedalen, Sverige.

From Funäsdalen we went to this nearby mountain valley, Bruksvallarna. There are a few mountain farms, and many local producers of food. I went to a bakery and bought the local thin bread, tunnbrød, and to a dairy and bought cheese made from both cow and goat milk. It was excellent, and I am going back in the summer and I hope to try hiking in these mountains. More photos from Bruksvallarna and Funäsdalen.

  1. the photos from all of the little villages, farms and out of the way places make me want to come to Norway and do a back country adventure … I love ‘off the beaten path’!

  2. Seeing the previous village (small town ?) I was wondering what is that rather large village for ?
    —– Ski resort (for winter) and farming / keep live-stock ? = producing daily products ?
    This bakery might be serving their bread to local people and selling cheese to the city, though
    how about the transport —– to visit there in summer, do you need a car or all way from
    Norway on foot ?

    1. Funäsdalen is bigger, in this valley there are just few houses/farms. And also a mountian hotel I was told. The other place (small town and the whole valley is a big winter resort. This small one keep livestock, and they produce different food, small bakery, dairy, smoking freshwater fish. I didn’t stay long, to find out all. You need a car I guess. There are public transportation too I guess (bus). And you might hike to this place from Norway, if you got some days. Or from nearby place in Sweden. or hitchhike.. Funäsdalen is about 30 km from the border, about 70 km from the small, Norwegian town Røros. Bruksvallarna is a part of Funäsdalen.

    1. Thanks, Bashar, for your observation, and see what a difference a missing letter can do.😉 I have fixed it now. Cheese: the one in the picture is mixed goat and cow milk cheece. They also have different pure goat milk cheeses, and cow milk cheeses. And sweet, brown “cheese” made of whey.
