Dalarna is often called “Sweden in miniature”. Much of the popular imagery of Sweden, culturally and geographically, is from Dalarna; a pretty red-painted cottage by a glittering lake, in the evening sun, people in brightly-coloured folk costumes dance and swirl in celebration of Midsummer. All very Swedish. All very Dalarna. The Dalarna landscape is one of mountains, waterfalls and rivers, deep forests with woodland lakes and open rolling farmland. Perfect country for hiking, skiing, cycling, skating, canoeing and other outdoors adventures. The province also hosts some of the world’s biggest mass sports events such as the Vasaloppet cross-country ski race and Vasaloppet endurance mountainbike event. The most popular visitor destinations in Dalarna are the Falun Coppermine, a UNESCO world heritage site, the museums dedicated to Swedish artists Carl Larsson and Anders Zorn, the Orsa Predator Park and the major ski resorts. The varied landscapes of the province, the outdoor activities on offer and its colourful, thriving culture, make Dalarna one of Sweden’s most popular destinations, all year around.
