Folk music, street musicians and bears are strongly associated with Orsa, a village that can be located on the northern shores of lake Siljan.
The music has made Orsa famous, with famous artists like Moraeus and Orsa Spelman leading the way. Their passion for music welcomes everyone to visit and partake in street music festival “Orsayran”. Orsa carries a long history in the grinding stone manufacturing, where the special Orsa sandstone has been used for grinding ever since the Viking times. At the year round open Orsa Predator Park you can meet rare species of animals, and in the wintertime Grönklitt is a true skier's paradise with its snowy slopes.
