Dalarna is famous for its decorated wooden horses (Dalahästen), Mora knifes, Falu red paint, special architecture of the wooden houses, Falu copper mine (UNESCO world heritage site) and of course traditional midsummer celebrations.
In the end we didn't spend that much time in the spa as we were just having too much to do and see. Hiking in the amazing autumn colors where paths were bathing in bright yellow leafs fallen of the birch trees. Do I have to say anything more?
I was out both evenings/nights taking pictures of the MilkyWay hoping to get a glimpse of Aurora. It had made appearance earlier that week but not while we were there :) Better luck next time!
And it will be a next time as we have to see this amazing area during spring time. Expectations are high.
