Fröå Gruva Family Adventure (eng)

Bring your family for an unforgettable adventure to the old historic and cultural mining village Fröå Gruva at the backside of Mt Åreskutan. This “Family Adventure” is tailor made to fit the needs for whole family, where one adult in the family will drive a quad and the other family members sit either at the “passenger seat behind the driver” or in the comfortable wagon that will be pulled behind the quad (max 5 pax in total per quad/wagon). When we arrive at Fröå Gruva we walk by foot on a guided tour for about one kilometer in the mining area and follow “Gruv Emil” on the first day at work in the mine. Of course, we will stop for a traditional Swedish “fika” adapted to the kids. Driving a quad is very easy and safe and our guides always explain all the instructions carefully before we leave. Helmets are included to the ones who sit on the Quad. All you need to drive yourself is a valid driving licens for a car. The guided tour in the Fröå Gruva Area is about 1 km long with a few stops.

Who is Fröå Gruva Family Adventure for?
