This station lies beside the stream from which it gets its name, at the foot of Getryggen, and is the main entrance to the fjelds of Jämtland since it is served by a car road (which is prone to getting buried in snow). As a consequence people tend to start (or end) their trips more or less at once, so those who actually stay overnight are often planning on remaining for several days, using the station as a base for shorter tours. Accommodation is offered in several tiers of comfort, the simplest one being in the old station building from 1933, which is situated on the opposite side of the stream. There is an award-winning restaurant, a well-stocked shop, and an equipment rental service providing a wide variety of items; the sauna is of recent make and includes an indoor cold spring. Guided tours and other arrangements are offered on a regular basis.

NOTE: There is no assistance phone available when the station is closed.
