Geography

Dalsland does not get the name of Sweden’s Lake Province for no reason. No other area of Sweden has so many lakes. Part of Lake Vanern, Sweden’s largest lake, is in the region. With much of the land covered with forest this is a truly beautiful area.

The flora and fauna of Dalsland changes throughout the seasons. Divided up into forest, valleys and plains it is home to many beautiful flowers such as lupins as well as many mushrooms and berries.
