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.
