Tarfala Research Station
Welcome to Tarfala
Four glaciers are located in the Tarfala valley of which Storglaciären is the most well known and one of the best studied glaciers in the world. The valley, which is a typical sub-arctic high alpine valley, encompasses the altitudinal range between 800 and 2103 m.
Tarfala research station is open between mid-March to early May and from late June to mid-September.
We welcome scientists and students from national and
international universities who wish to carry out research projects
or run a course.
The stations are also an excellent platform for workshops and meetings.
