Falun

Getting there & around

Falun isn't on the main train lines - change at Borlänge when coming from Stockholm or Mora - but there are direct trains to and from Gävle (Skr121, 1¼ hours, roughly every two hours).

Swebus Express (0200-21 82 18; www.swebusex press.se) has buses on the Göteborg-Karlstad-Falun-Gävle route, and connections to buses on the Stockholm-Borlänge-Mora route.

Regional transport is run by Dalatrafik (0771-95 95 95; www.dalatrafik.se in Swedish), which covers all corners of the county of Dalarna. Tickets cost Skr17 for trips within a zone, and Skr17 extra for each new zone. A 31-day länskort costs Skr900 and allows you to travel throughout the county. Regional bus 70 goes approximately hourly to Rättvik (Skr51, one hour) and Mora (Skr85, 1¾ hours).

You can hire bicycles from Cykel & Fjäll (638 62; info@cykelfjall.se; Stora Torget; per day/week Skr90/250; closed Sun).
