Three rivers meet in Dalarna, and long the way you will find great outdoor and fjärdar. It is a trip that will take you from the Norwegian border in west to the Baltic sea in east.
The river Västerdalälven ( the western Dalälven) starts in the western part of the region of Dalarna, crossing the border to Norway. The river Österdalälven (the eastern Dalälven) starts in the northern part of Dalarna. The two rivers meet up in the so called meeting of rivers ( Älvmötet) in the town Djurås. Here you can watch the rivers meet and join forces as it becomes river Dalälven, the third longest river in Sweden, 542 km.
Get to know resorts, towns and fjard areas along the course of three rivers.
Start at Idre – an outdoor adventure resort with great sports, nature and life quality experiences.
Go further east and discover various fjärdar (see below the definition of a fjard/ fjärd):
At the Tyttbo rapids you have great fishing. The Tyttboforsen river empties out into Färnebofjärden National park situated on the bio frontier to Norrland, where the fauna och the Swedish south meet the fauna of the Swedish north. Within the border of the National park you have four Swedish counties Dalarna, Västmanland, Uppsala och Gävleborg.
