Delve deep into central Sweden, to the heart of Dalarna, and you’ll discover Falun – a compelling city fringed with copper-fired mines. And it’s the copper deposits from these mines that give the warm hue to many of Sweden’s quintessential red houses. Book your Falun holidays and make a beeline for these now-defunct UNESCO-listed mines to hear the stories behind this impressive site that was exploited since the ninth century and abandoned in 1992. Falun also has a thriving Nordic skiing scene and regularly hosts international competitions so there's always something going on here.
