Over a period of just three days, five international participants, all with stressful lives and professions managed to reduce their stress levels while increasing their feeling of wellbeing. How did they do it? Researchers working for the 72 Hour Cabin project provided the answer - deep in the countryside of West Sweden.
We really can’t repeat it often enough: Dalsland is Sweden’s most lake-rich region. 11 % of the province’s surface is covered by water. This is obvious of course when it comes to accommodation as there is no problem finding a night's stay with a lake view.
Dalslands outdoor pursuits never end. The landscape is small in size but between Lake Vänern’s unbroken horizon, Norway’s mountains, Värmland’s forests, the cliffs of Bohuslän and Västergötland’s culture there is a whole universe of variation.
A tour on the Dalsland canal takes you to the heart of the most lake-rich landscape in Sweden. The canal has over the years transformed from a transport route to a much visited tourist attraction. It was only necessary to excavate 12km in order to connect large and small lakes and create a 250 kilometer long picturesque canal.
Hike through wilderness and beauty – with comfort! This package is for those who love nature – but equally love a comfy bed and good food. We combine comfortable, beautiful accomodation with nice dinners into a three-day wilderness adventure on Dalsland’s stunning Pilgrim trail.
Authentic food in an authentic setting. The Dalsland cuisine has a lot to offer. It would be strange otherwise given the abundance of local produce from the lakes, meadows and forests that our chefs have access to.
Lake Vänern is not just the third largest lake in Europe but also a powerful inland sea with many contrasts and expansive views ending in the horizon where sky meets sea.
