The Fulufjället Nationalpark is 385 km² pure nature. Great greens. Main attraction is the ‘Njupeskärs vattenfall’. We went for it.

From Idre Fäll we made a trip to the Fulufjället Nationalpark. It was cloudy, rainy and cold. From the entrance and the Naturum information-center we made a walk to the Njupeskär waterfall. And back.

From Idre Fjäll we made a short trip over the ‘Trollvägen’. It was cloudy, rainy, windy and cold. Amazing field with piled stones that had something to do with trolls, but I never really understood. We didn’t climb the Nipfjället and soon went back for a hot coffee.

Our third goal was Idre Fjäll. When we got there it turned out to be a winter-sports-center without snow. But for the summer-tourists there were other sports-facilities, like swimming-pools, which was nice for the kids. (We prefer to jump in a river or a lake rather than in a container filled with chlorous water.) At the service counter a nice lady gave us the key to cottage 61.

As Idre Fjäll was a holiday-center, we did some shopping in the nearest town called Idre. Not very alive.

In Orsa Grönklitt the kids had found some friends; so my wife and me went to the Orsabjörnpark all by ourselfs. Bit crowdy out there; but an enjoyable day. We had a nice reunion with a polarbear we had seen in the Rotterdam Zoo.

Before entering the super-market we strolled around a bit in Orsa. First things that attracted my attention were old cars and other weird vehicles. It felt like a city with a lot of ‘Rockers’.

Our second goal was Orsa Grönklitt. On our way we had a nice stop on a quiet, well kept parking-spot with a small Vikingskipet. Just before Orsa we stopped to take a look over lake Orsasjön.

We stayed in Kopparberg for three nights. On the last day we did the orange hike-track. It brought us to an old copper-mine that was filled with water. Strange, copper-green water. Nice place; nice walk.

When the days are getting shorter and the temperature is going down, I sometimes get caught by nostalgia. Not depressingly heavy, but enough to make me go through older photo’s of nice travels in warm summertimes. That’s how I ended up in Sweden 2009; and a lot of trees. I might as well show some more.
We drove to Kiel; and after a night on one of those terrible cruise-ferries, we reached Göteborg. We had to do a booze-test, before we were allowed to drive into Sweden, for our first destination: Kopparberg. (somewhere in the middle, above Örebro). We had arranged a self-drive-trip, so 4 km. above Kopparberg we were expected by some nice people who gave us the key to cottage nr. 21.

In Kopparberg we visited the ‘Tingshus’, which means something like ‘court of justice’. I liked the wooden skin; my daughter had seen it all quite quick.
