Sälen

Just imagine, throughout the year our mountainsides are shared by berry-pickers, walkers, cyclists and skiers. Snow-covered birch trees, willow bushes and lingonberries create great forest skiing for youngsters in the winter, and are also home to real delicacies for mushroomers in the autumn. You’ll feel at home in Sälenfjällen – whether the landscape is dressed in white and your walking boots, fishing rods, bikes and canoes have been replaced by skis, sledges and snowboards, or it is the height of summer and you’re enjoying games and bathing in our lakes and streams. This is a place where children can roam freely and enjoy themselves.

Corfu

Corfu is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. It is the greenest of the Ionian Islands and probably also the best known. The island offers a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and several seductively sandy beaches. The west coast of the island is the most attractive, as that is the place where you will find some of the prettiest countryside, and it is also here that you will find the small coves with the sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs and trees. The north coast is more typical Greek with a rocky coastline where the crystal clear water has chopped into pebbled bays and coves.

Aruba

Sun-drenched beaches awash with tourists sit next to desert wilderness in Aruba, one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean. With warm and sunny weather all year round, the island seems frozen in a timeless holiday atmosphere, with turquoise ocean waters washing over Aruba's soft warm sand. The nightlife bursts with Latin music and exotic sounds, and exciting shopping and dining experiences await at every corner. Stronger waves break against the eastern coast, deserted and swept over by wind – exploring it will lead the most adventurous visitors to breathtaking natural beauty.

Vilnius

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is one of the most frequently visited cities of Eastern Europe. It draws attention, not only because of its unique architectural character, but also because of its cultural events and attractions. During the first ten years of Lithuanian independence, the city became a tourist attraction centre. It is, therefore, not surprising that the number of tourists consistently increased during these ten years and that the tourist infrastructure and services developed at the same time.
Sälen, Sweden

CROSS-COUNTRY AND TOURING SKIING

Sälenfjällen is home to, and the start of, the world’s oldest, longest and biggest ski marathon – Vasaloppet. Every year, 80,000 people cover the 90 km between Sälen and Mora on cross-country skis. But you don’t need to be a long-distance skier to enjoy cross-country skiing in our trails. We have 250 kilometres of groomed trails, from short child-friendly ones in forests to longer excursions in the mountains. Naturally, we also have a cross-country skiing school that will help you train away the wobbles and improve your speed and technique. Nothing tastes as good as when you’re eating your picnic, sitting on a sleeping mat beside a mountain stream on a sunny spring day. Or you can take a break in the waffle hut after a few kilometres in the cross-country skiing trails, and enjoy waffles with cloudberry jam, cream and a cup of coffee.
