Winter camping in Orsa
Orsa Grönklitt is a perfect starting point if you want a winter campsite for all the family with lots to do. We spend a long weekend at Orsa Grönklitt in Dalarna, try a snowmobile safari and a predator park as well as cross-country skiing and a fondue evening.
Downhill skiing in Orsa
Orsa Grönklitt is one of Sweden’s southernmost ski resorts, yet one of the most reliable for snow. Here, the slopes often open in the middle of December. There are 23 descents in total, most of which are red or blue.
Snowmobile safari and jigging
Snowmobile is a wonderful way to experience the winter valleys. We take one of the snowmobile trails and see incredibly beautiful views and lovely nature on our hour-long trip to our stop. Here we light a fire and try our fishing luck with jigging.
No one doubts that cross-country skiing is a big sport in Orsa, bearing in mind that Sweden’s best-known cross-country ski race is held right here, in Dalarna. We refresh our technique with an instructor from the facility’s Längdcentrum. There are 80 km of ski tracks, 9 of which are illuminated.
See wild animals at Orsa Rovdjurspark
In Orsa Rovdjurspark you can see polar bears and Siberian tigers, to mention two, in the flesh. If you come in the winter there is a risk that the brown bears will be sleeping, but there’s much, much more to see, lynx and wolves, for example.
