Outdoor Dalarna summer
Sweden may not have any famous monuments (though we can claim the world’s oldest tree – right here in Dalarna!) but what we do have is something even better – pure, unspoiled nature in abundance and the right to roam free in it. And in Dalarna, often referred to as "Sweden in miniature", that means the freedom to explore a wide range of natural environments from the magnificent mountain ranges of the north to the small lakes, farmlands and pine and deciduous forests in the south.
Meadows filled with flowers at midsummer, clear mountain streams, cool, deep forests, rolling fields and fells – Dalarna in summertime is a natural paradise ideal for adventures or relaxation. Take a stroll through idyllic scenery or a gentle cycling trip along country lanes, pick berries and mushrooms, fish for trout in the waters of the Dalälven river and spot wildlife such as elk and beaver.
If speed and thrills are higher on your holiday agenda, experience the excitement of hiking high mountain paths and biking cross-country trails, or the thrill of white water rafting on river rapids.
