Flatruetvägen

Flatruetvägen, officially called Z531, is the Swedish highest public road, reaching an elevation of 975 meters above the sea level. The road links Funäsdalen to Åsarna and goes over the mountain Flatruet in Härjedalen.

The road is closed at times, when the weather is bad. In winter the road is always closed from 22.00 - 06.00 hours. The Flatruetvägen is Sweden’s highest road at about 975m above sea level and stretches unpaved thru a tundra-like area populated by very few people and a bunch of reindeer. It makes necessary to drive carefully and slow down whenever approaching an oncoming car. You will be driving on dirt roads for about 100 km.
Flatruetvägen – the Flatruet road – is winding in the midst of the Scandinavian wilderness. The road passes the big mountain plateau Flatruet with a magnificent view over the mountains of south Sápmi. Here you find Sweden's best snowkiting with a unique nature and smooth winds. Flatruetvägen is the highest public road in Sweden. It takes you across the mountains from Mittådalen to Ljungdalen, north of Funäsdalen. But in fact the entire road from Funäsdalen to Åsarna is a very picturesque one. You can stop your car just about anywhere and get out for a short or long walk in the mountains or along a lake or river.
