Finish of the Vasaloppet in Mora

Vasaloppet is the world’s oldest, biggest and longest ski race. The first race was in 1922 and the classic 90 km stretch from Berga by in Sälen to Mora was, for a long time, the only Vasaloppet race. Today there are sixteen different races; cycling, running and cross-country skiing, that together attract 100,000 registered participants every year. All these races run along the historic stretch between Sälen and Mora.

Sled skiing in Rättvik

Rättvik makes itself very unique with Sweden’s longest and only twin-parallel-track summer toboggan run. The drag lift will first drawn you up in your sled. One you’re on top of the hill you can speed 725 meters down hill. It is a nice adventure for the whole family. There are single and double sled’s. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult. The toboggan run is only open during the summer (June-August) 🙂

Rättvik has also a piers that goes 628 meters into Lake Siljan. Originally it was created as a jetty for the steamer over Lake Siljan. Tourists could then visit Rättvik and spend the night in the neighboring hotel. In 1992 the pier has been renewed with the help of many donors. All the names of people who donated can be found on the boards of the pier. The steamer over Lake Siljan might not be there anymore but you can still travel over Lake Siljan by boat. A nice little boat for tourists named M/S Gustaf Wasa sails over Lake Siljan to Mora and Leksland. Next to the long pier is a place to bathe.
