    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a family we love the outdoors, skiing, cycling and also cooking. There are many activites in the area depending on which season you come. In the summer there is mountainbiking, hiking, canoeing, fishing, swimming in the lake. In the autumn there is the berry- and mushroom picking, harvest markets. The winter offers skiing, crosscountry skiing straight out into the woods for miles from the house, or by car ca 30 minutes to one of Europes top skiresorts. Spring time offers a wide range of skitouring. The gastronomy here is world class and for someone who would like to experience the best of Swedish cuisine, there are many cafes and restaurants locally on offer.
