Mora and the Siljan area

The Dalarne landscape in central Sweden is calm and beautiful. Lots of trees, lakes, rivers. A central feature is the Siljan lake and a few small towns located around this lake and in the low valleys. The main town in terms of administration, business and population appears to be Mora. Mora has a nice location right on Siljan, and has a solid appearance. Many wooden houses are painted the brick red color of the old. The newer buildings are modest brick and concrete and do not overwhelm the quaint appearance of the town. A nice place to visit.

The big bang

Things to do

Vasaloppet - world's biggest ski race

Mora is the site of the arrival of the world's largest cross country ski race, Vasaloppet, with nearly 50.000 participants. The race commemorates a middle age historic event and a flight by skis.
Every year, the first week of March watch out for Vasaloppet. You find all the info you need on this web site..................
The goal area is right in the town centre of Mora, next to the church. Much of the life of winter visitors to Mora revolves around cross-country skiing.
