It’s said that Siljan was formed by an impact of a meteorite a long long time ago. Siljansringen (the circle of Siljan) that the crater is called is the largest known impact site in Europe. The result about 365 million years later is an incredible scenery and landscapes for outdoor recreation both summer and winter. It is full of hiking trails, biking trails and ski trails. You will pass shacks, health wells, outdoor bathing, fishing spots, and fantastic views. Hundreds of thousands of tourists come here every year.
Best of course is to rent a cottage around Siljan and from there explore its delights day by day, or maybe just relax and enjoy the tranquility of this idyllic setting. The regions in Leksand, Rättvik, Mora, and Orsa itselfs are all worth their visits.
