Vemdalens Church

Vemdalen has been developed as a skiing center. There are three popular ski resorts close to the Vemdalen; Vemdalsskalet, Klövsjö/Storhogna and Björnrike. [2] [3] [4] [5]

Vemdalen Church (Vemdalens kyrka) was erected in 1624 and moved to its present site in 1763. The church building was constructed of wood and covered with wood shingles. A free standing bell tower was erected in 1755.

The church pulpit is carved by Jöns Ljungberg (1736-1818). The altarpiece was carved by Jonas Granberg (1696-1776) between 1770 and 1773.

The church belongs to the parish of Hedebygden in the Diocese of Härnösand. [6]
