In Dalsland we not only have a whole lot of nature. It’s also very varied. Within a range of a few kilometres you can enjoy the plains, coast, alpine terrain, enchanted forests, mountains and lakes. And that’s probably what prompted Prince Eugen at the end of the 19th century to describe Dalsland as a microcosm of Sweden. Thanks to our unspoiled nature you will enjoy a boost of both rest and recreation – no matter whether you’re here to hike, paddle, cycle, climb, fish, sail on the Dalsland Canal, bathe or just relax.
