To hike in Dalsland is to walk for hours on our mountains and enjoy expansive views. To go deep into the forest and walk pass lakes and ruins from old crofts. There are lots of new hikes and trails to discover and we will be happy to show you the maps!


In Dalsland you as a canoeist have the opportunity to experience nature closeup, wild and genuine. Feel like an adventurer, find serenity and experience real nature.

wild swimming

With hundreds of lakes , some with access only by foot, there is no better place for wild swimming. The water is clean and fresh, sometimes chilly, and the experience of swimming with nature around is great. 
You just have to jump into the water!


If you like gravel, this is the place! Most of the winding roads have no traffic and it's very easy to plan day rides. Great variety of terrain, nice landscapes and views, fresh lakes to jump in... what else for a great cycling adventure?

horse riding

From Steneby, you can ride through Dalsland's landscape on horseback. Deep forest, small streams and wildlife will be on your tour. (25 Km from the B&B)

Not Quite

Not Quite is a parrot in the spruce forest.

Not Quite is a silver thread in kraft paper.

Not Quite is a little bit of New York in the middle of nowhere. (2 Km from the B&B)


The Union Trail is a 350 km long cycling route from Moss in Norway to Karlstad (Sweden). It passes right at our doorstep! You're most welcome to stop by and stay with us as we are really bike friendly!

The Pilgrim Path in north Dalsland is a scenic long distance walking trail for the true nature lover. At times you’ll be treated to incredible views of the wilderness.

The path is just over the hill, so welcome to our place for a restful night.

Vandra i Ronjaland

Hiking in Ronjaland is a network of walks and hikes on the terrain where several scenes of the classic Swedish film "Ronja, the robber's daughter" ware shot. You'll discover wonderful and magic landscapes like from another universe.

The film is based on an Astrid Lindgren's book. (Starting at the B&B)

Dalsland canal

The Dalsland canal is considered to be one of Europe's most beautiful waterways since it largely consists of natural lakes that are linked by locks and small waterways. The Dalsland canal is rather like a sting of pearls - small and large lakes, coves and fjords joined together by 12 kilometres of man-made canal. (20 Km from the B&B)

the West Coast

The West Coast is Sweden's wild coast with its archipelagos, islands, cliffs and bays. Barely 100 km from the B&B, it's a typical Swedish summer experience. (100 Km from the B&B)

islands hopping

The West Coast has hundreds of islands, most of them inhabited. A system of public ferries can bring you from one island to another at a very fair price and with a high dose of fun.  Visit Åstol, Vrangö or Käringö for a great West Coast experience.

rock carvings

At the Bronze age, the sea level was slightly higher and people of the time used to carve the rocks by the shores with very specific drawings. This is now a UNESCO World Heritage site with its center in Tanum, the Vitlycke Museum. (90 Km from the B&B)

historical mansions

There are many "Herrgård" (mansions) in the countryside of Dalsland but Baldersnäs is probably the most romantic of all. Ideally situated on a peninsula on Laxsjön, the manor is a great place for a romantic walk in the parc before a dinner (or just a fika!). (15 Km from the B&B)
