In the varied landscape of southern Dalarna, Smedjebacken is located near Lake Norra Barken. The lake is connected to Strömsholm's canal and the fine cycling opportunities that exist along the canal throughout its stretch through Dalarna and Västmanland down to Lake Mälaren. In Smedjebacken lies the grand Villa Gladtjärn Hotel and Conference with everything a cyclist can ask for in terms of accommodation, food and activities. In the fresh environment, it is easy to relax and recover after today's cycling.

As the name Smedjebacken suggests, there is a local history in mining and metal handling. In the area there are old cabins to visit. Strömsholm's canal was built at the end of the 18th century in order to transport iron from Bergslagen down to Mälardalen. In Smedjebacken there is the cultural center Meken where exhibitions and concerts are arranged.

At Villa Gladtjärn you stay comfortably with a view of the lake. In the midst of the fantastic nature with the possibility of fishing, relaxing walks and cycling in the surroundings.
