Find your way to the glass cabins in Dalsland
The glass cabins offered by The 72 Hour Cabin can be found at a number of locations in Dalsland. But where exactly is Dalsland? Located in western Sweden, it has Lake Vänern – the largest lake in Sweden – as its nearest neighbour to the east. To the west, Dalsland borders on Norway and the province of Bohuslän. The nearest city is Gothenburg, about two hours away.
How do I get there?
The closest international airport is Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, just outside Gothenburg. You can hire a car at the airport and from there it takes around two hours to drive to the glass cabins.
If you would prefer to travel by public transport, that’s fine. Airport buses operate between the airport and the centre of Gothenburg (30 minutes). From there you can take the regional train to Mellerud or Åmål (1-1½ hours). You then switch to a local bus, depending on which glass cabin you intend to visit.

Swedes are very friendly although sometimes they can be a little reserved. They seldom start a conversation with strangers unless they are asked something, in which case they are more than happy to talk. The vast majority of Swedes also speak good English. If you are having difficulty finding your way to your destination, simply ask someone for help.
