Character of Sweden 2014 (fly-Drive)

Dalarna is often called 'Miniature Sweden' as it is one of the most traditional areas of Sweden with towns and villages surrounding Lake Siljan. This beautiful area has typical red wooden houses, unbeatable views, deep culture and is the home of the Dala Horse (no Swedish home is complete without one). One of Sweden's most famous rivers, The Dalälven (520km long), runs from the Swedish mountains close to the Norwegian border, through Lake Siljan to the Baltic Sea in the east.

The centre of this holiday is Lake Siljan and the area surrounding Mora, which is just 4hrs north of Stockholm. It is an interesting diverse geographical and cultural area. Copper is a common mineral in Sweden, especially in the Dalarna area. The houses are red as the red colouring is a byproduct of copper mining and was cheaper than other colours.

Attractions in the Siljan area include Europe's largest bear park, many water based activities / excursions on Lake Siljan, the Inland Railway, the Zorn museum, world class ice hockey and vast amounts of nature. Siljan is also home to the worlds largest cross country ski race, the Vasaloppet.

Itinerary

Days 1 to 4

Klockgården Hotellet - Dalarna

The village of Tällberg is perched on the edge of Lake Siljan and is typical of how an old fashioned Swedish village used to look like. Wooden houses are painted red on the shores of Lake Siljan and in the cultural province of Dalarna. Tällberg is an idyllic village surrounded by beautiful nature and is a wonderful place to spend a warm summers day.
Klockgården is a hamlet within Tällberg, with 20 old wooden houses nestling on the sloping shores of lake Siljan. Each room has individual character and has been carefully modernised. Several rooms have a balcony, open fire, sauna and jacuzzi. Klockgården’s entertainment programme includes music and folk dancing, arts and crafts exhibitions, especially during the summer.

Simply Sweden Recommends
Take a dip in Lake Siljan, relax on a boat trip across Lake Siljan, explore the vast amounts of nature. Indulge in the Swedish culture - this is what this holiday is all about!

Days 4 to 7

Fryksås Hotel - Dalarna

An intimate hotel with a unique atmosphere and a magnificent view of Lake Siljan and Siljan's countryside. Make your trip memorable and visit this 16th century rural environment close to the wilderness where farmers used to bring their livestock to graze during the summer. Fryksås has 150 old timber buildings, so called 'fäbodar' from the 1500s. This is one of Sweden's oldest & largest fäbodar collections. Some of these have been restored and Fryksås now offers three types of accommodation: hotel rooms, modern cabins, and exclusive cabins with jacuzzi and sauna.
