Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Dalecarlia

Located in central Sweden, Dalecarlia, also known as Dalarna, is a popular vacation spot for Swedes from the southern part of Sweden who travel there for summer holiday. The Scandinavian mountain range rises in the northern part of the Province. Many of the lakes in this area have been created by glaciers. The southern part of the Province is mostly plains and copper mines. Runn Lake, with its 26 miles of water and 50 islands, is a popular tourist destination.

As you might expect, in this region of lakes and forests, outdoor activities are very popular including cross country skiing, white water rafting, canoeing, and biking on world class mountain bike trails.
Sporting events are another reason this destination is popular with Swedes and tourists from around the world who come for the sulky racing, football, hockey and the world’s biggest cross country ski race. Besides the cross-country ski race, there are other huge events for swimmers and bikers – both of which attract thousands of participants. Motorheads will want to come in July when there is a week-long classic car show.

The region is often described as the place people go for the simple life. Hand-crafted items such as jewelry, leather goods, and Dala model horses are popular with locals and tourists. Visitors are drawn to see the underground Falun Copper Mine that has been named a UNESCO heritage site. Another favorite destination is the Zorn Art Museum. The locals will tell you that no trip is complete without a visit to Leksand Crispbread Bakery.

Seeing the region’s animals in their natural environment is a big draw in this area. Animal lovers can go on bear excursions, beaver and elk safaris, or visit a bison farm. Orsa Predator Park invites visitors to see these large animals in their own setting. The Sahlins Struts Ostrich Farm is another unique spot where tourists can participate in an ostrich safari or try ostrich egg ice cream.

Accommodations are plentiful. Tourists can rent a summer farm, a cottage or an apartment. Luxury housing in a manor house for those with a bigger budget is also obtainable. There are spa hotels, log cabins, and B&B’s. Places to park a camper or pitch a tent are everywhere.
