Most Swedes have visited Sälen at some point in their lives. The village, Sweden's most famous ski destination, is in the Dalarna region close to the Norwegian border. The mountains roll across the horizon and the views stretch for miles upon miles. With a Sälen SkiPass you can ski over 100 slopes, and if that's not enough for you it's easy to add a couple of days of skiing in Trysil (over the border in Norway) to your holiday. Sälen consists of four ski areas and you'll also find Scandinavia's most modern chairlift here.

The ski areas offer everything from Northern Europe's largest interconnecting button lift area to one of Sweden's steepest prepared pistes. To get to and from the slopes or from one slope to another, just use the free ski bus. 

Sälen is a veritable mecca for families with children. You'll find a water park, indoor surfing, a cinema, shopping, dog sled tours, snowmobile safaris, lots of children's activities and a large number of restaurants serving local specialties. 

An international airport located just 10-20 minutes from Sälen opened in 2019. Sälen is also the starting point for the famed Vasaloppet cross-country skiing competition and you'll find many of Dalarna's renowned cultural attractions close by.
