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 2096.8 m.

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.
