Head to the lakeside village Mora, a laidback town that encapsulates the most Swedish of Swedish landscapes. Be charmed by tiny countryside villages with red log cottages, pine forests and rolling meadows, and admire the work of a meteorite that crashed into the Earth millions of years ago, forming what is today Lake Siljin. Mora is also the home of artist Anders Zorn and the world’s biggest cross-country ski race, the Vasaloppet. Perhaps take a leisurely boat trip across the lake, sink a line to partake in a little fishing or hike around the gentle rolling surrounds.
