As Dalarna is considered the most traditional region of Sweden, you can experience and learn a lot of new things during your holiday. Every year, a folk music festival is held in the town of Rättvik, but other typical customs are also maintained in the central Swedish region. The largest area of Dalarna is forested and the many lakes round off the magnificent landscape. Active holidaymakers will feel right at home here, as there are plenty of hiking and cycling trails. But Dalarna is also an ideal holiday destination for those seeking peace and quiet. Are you interested in art? You won't miss out, because Dalarna is considered the centre for handicraft art in Sweden. For a small souvenir, the artistically painted "Dala horse", the country's most popular souvenir, is the perfect thing to buy.
