Welcome to Nedre Dalälven!
A trip in Nedre Dalälven is a journey through a humble but majestic landscape. Where north meets south in the Swedish countryside and where the unique environment at the very heart of the area is protected as a national park. The area’s history is strongly characterized by the Dalälven River, a vital feature of the district. The toils and troubles of previous generations have left clear marks.

Ever-expanding open landscapes, interspersed with deep forests. Numerous well-preserved historic industrial sites dotted out along the river like a string of pearls. It is the unique natural and cultural environments of the area that prompted UNESCO to designate the Nedre Dalälven River Landscape as a Biosphere Reserve.
