Welcome to discover the beautiful Siljan countryside from the bike saddle. Rättvik is your starting point when you discover the area around Siljan. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails, restaurants, cafes and shops, many talented craftsmen as well as unique sights to visit. 

This bike package offers beautiful views of the varied valley landscape and you pass several beautiful villages where the red-painted houses stand close together and the village roads meander. The tour also follows old disused limestone tracks that served as transport routes for the lime that has been mined in the area's many limestone quarries.

Along the way there are traces of the forestry that has taken place in the area for hundreds of years and you can experience the spectacular outdoor arena Dalhalla which is one of Siljansbygden's most popular places to visit. You cycle on your own and live comfortably along the road. Transport of luggage between the accommodations is included in the bicycle package.

Wander around the church pillow and peek into Rättvik's beautiful church, see the medieval church stables, have a snack at Rättviks Gammelgård, visit the Wasastenen and Stiernhööksstenen. If you arrive early, there is the opportunity to discover Rättvik from the bike.

Why not take the opportunity to cycle the Dalhalla round, a trip that takes about 3-4 hours and passes the famous outdoor arena Dalhalla as well as popular Nittsjö ceramics factory. You can follow a guided bicycle excursion with a local guide.

Once in Siljansnäs, take the opportunity to hike to the top of the mountain and enjoy the view of Siljansnäs to one of the weather and Siljan to the other. Enjoy good food at Buffil's Anna and take part in Naturum Siljansnäs exhibitions and information about the Dalora's flora and fauna.

Forest and exciting Viking-era tomb (Siljansnäs-Gesunda-Sollerön-Mora)

The road is bordered by alternating forest and cultivated landscape before the bridge leads over to Sollerön, Siljan's largest island. Be sure to visit the well-preserved Viking tombs, Sollerön's fine church, the local hometown, the source of sacrifice and the nature reserve Agnmyren before the journey continues towards Vasaloppålets Mora.

Take an evening stroll along Siljan's beach, eat well at local restaurants and pass under the Vasalopp destination's portal as many times as you like.

Day 4

Gustav Vasa, Anders Zorn & Hairpieces (Mora-Våmhus-Orsa)

Otherwise Zorn_rowing-boat

Be sure to visit the Vasaloppsmuseet or Zorngården with the art museum and café before the journey continues along Lake Orsasjön towards the haircuts in Våmhus. Yet some distance away, on the other side of the lake is everyone's Kalle Moraeus hometown of Orsa. For those who are able and willing to make a detour, a breathtaking view and beautiful mooring environment awaits high up on the mountain in Fryksås.

Just before Orsa's community is the small village of Hansjö, which boasts its own craft dairy, feel free to buy a cheese or two with you. Stay and eat well at Kungshaga hotel just outside Orsa. There is also the opportunity to make the choice to stay in a floating hotel room out on Lake Orsa. However, this needs to be booked well in advance of the trip.

Breakfast

Day 5

Beautiful village environment and relaxing countryside (Orsa-Furudal)

näsets marcusgård host couple

The journey takes you through several smaller valley villages and the larger village of Skattungbyn, which, thanks to its many enterprising villagers, offers both coffee, lunch and food in the village's cooperative café and grocery store. You can also visit the village's charming and craft sausage factory.

Once in Furudal and the village of Näset, you will be met by nice hosts and beautiful nature. Here, too, there is unique accommodation as an option - a big red moon, hovering between the trees! From here you can sometimes see moose grazing under your tree house. In the evening you see through the dome window into the starry sky, if you are lucky they can see the northern lights.

Nose's Marcusgård, Furudal
Breakfast
about 42 km
Day 6

Waterfalls, exciting geology & unique barges (Furudal-Rättvik)

Rättvik church @ LottaBacklund2

The final cycle day offers recesses in both the old village environment on Norrboda Gammelstan as well as fascinating geology at Styggforsen's nature reserve and waterfalls in Boda church village. Here you can see the clear traces of the severe meteorite strike that occurred 400 million years ago and which has since characterized the Siljan countryside in different ways.

Before you arrive in Rättvik and cozy Lustigsgården again, you pass the unique cultivation landscape in Nedre and Övre Gärdsjö. The area is also called the Ladriket because of its approximately 200 old barns, of which the oldest is from the 13th century, one of the oldest known in Sweden. Here is also Björgården's jam making with its charming farm shop. Once back in Rättvik, it's time to tie the trip together and enjoy one last time of a beautiful sunset over Siljan.

Dalarna and Siljansbygden thank you for the visit and warmly welcome you again for new discoveries!

Breakfast
about 46 km

Cancellation or change can be made no later than 15 days before arrival free of charge. Cancellation later or no-show will be charged the full amount.
