On the west coast of Sweden, bordering with Norway, the region of Dalarna offers travellers an insight into traditional Swedish architecture and culture.
You’ll see the red wooden houses that are so iconic of Sweden side by side with a background of lush green scenery that turns entirely white in winter as the area becomes a cross-country skier’s paradise.
Without a doubt, Dalarna holidays should include a trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Falun copper mine with its dramatic man-made ravines and vibrant red and orange earth.
Outdoorsy types will be in heaven exploring the three national parks in this mountainous region.
Whether it’s the depth of winter or the height of summer, there’s a variety of activities to enjoy; get wonderfully lost in deep forests and canoe or kayak on one of the lakes during the warmer months, or join the cross-country skiers as they make their way across the famous Vasaloppet track.
