    Grövelsjön: a hikers paradise in Dalarna, Sweden

    About a year ago I went on a two week solo trip through Sweden. On this trip I went as far north as Sälen, Sweden’s southernmost fjäll. Here someone told me about Grövelsjön: a mountain area on the border with Norway, a little further north than Sälen. He also told me that he had made the most beautiful hike in Scandinavia here: the Sylen hike. With a boat you’ll sail across the lake from Sweden to Norway and you hike back through the mountains.

    Adventure in Vålådalen Nature Reserve, Sweden

    While the raindrops hit the windows and the wind howls around the house, we grab our phones again. Rain, rain and more rain. It’s August 2019 and we are in Norway, where we have rented a cabin in the Åkrafjord. Apart from one day we have only had rain so far and it doesn’t seem to get much better in the next days. We look at each other and know that staying in Norway is not an option. The next day we load our luggage in Rudolph the Volvo, get in the car and take off to our beloved Sweden. David knows a nice place where we could possibly hike…
