Experience summer in Dalarna

Imagine a place where you can run barefoot through the grass and dive into inviting lakes. Enjoy bright summer nights and quiet mornings, rolling mountains, deep forests, untouched meadows and charming villages with red wooden houses. Emerge yourself in the most Swedish of traditions – dance around the midsummer pole, sing until early morning, listen to brooks & fire. Taste the local cuisine and a real Swedish fika, learn about a long and rich history, pick up new skills and find calm in the countryside.

Dalarna is the place where nature and culture meet. The people that live here have a rich heritage that has been shaped by both and is essential to the way of living. We welcome you to the Dala way of living.

In Sweden, everyone is allowed to move freely in the nature. It is allowed to walk, climb and paddle, to pick flowers and berries. This is called "the right of public access". Do not disturb - do not destroy is the main rule. Remember to light a fire at specific locations if directives are available, take the garbage back home and do not disturb wild animals. Our mountains, rivers and forests are fantastic, help to preserve our beautiful nature.
