The hidden gem
The snow crunches under your shoes, the cold bites your cheeks. You can hear your breaths, your thoughts. You look out over the village where old log houses whisper about a bygone era. Behind you, the snow-covered spruces have embraced the small village, and in front of you a mile-wide view awaits. The mighty Lake of Orsa has spread out to the village down there and together with the mountains surrounding it creates a horizon you will never forget. This is Fryksås, a hideaway when you who want a little more of the best things in life.
For centuries, Fryksås was used as a summer residence for the farmers in the surrounding villages. The grazing for the cattle at home on the farms was not enough, and they therefore moved their animals to the summer pasture and lived there in the summers. Fryksås has also grown and manufactured food products for a long time. Even today, there is a summer pasture here, although most of the cottages are holiday homes and a place for recreation and enjoyment. Today there are two restaurants where you can enjoy locally produced food and a small genuine SPA besides the Fryksås Chalet.
Right In the middle of the mountain village awaits The Fryksås Chalet where you can spend your dream holiday. In the genuine log house, we have let the natural materials account for a large part of the atmosphere. Here is a place to create memories. For cozy and snuggling moments in front of the large fireplace, enjoy a nice yoga session upstairs in our meditation room, or play fun board games on the large kitchen table. In the bathroom there is a sauna and a lovely old style bathtub. Outdoors there is a hot tub SPA bath which is available at your disposal. The large terrace offers many hours of leisure, sunshine, beautiful views and space for long dinners. Full service is included, so you can spend your day enjoying life and trying some of the amazing activities in the area.

Discover your senses.
Here your senses are awakened simply by the air you breathe. A walk in the mountain hut feels like a discovery, a snowshoe hike in the woods makes you come to life, outdoor cooking at a barbecue area makes the soul rejoice. We dare to promise that it will.
The mountain hut is close to the ski slope, ski tracks and predator park. And we have chosen the best of life here. Hand-picked activities, sights and adventures that you can discover on your own or with a guide. The best of Fryksås, the best of Dalarna, and of Sweden.
Since I first discovered Fryksås, I was captivated by the stunning surroundings and the soul of the village. Me and my husband bought our first chalet here in 2013 to live the magnificent dream of the Swedish lifestyle.
I was a professional cross-country skier back then, and when it was time for me to recharge before the most important competition of my life, the world championships near my hometown in Dalarna, Fryksås was the obvious place of choice. For two weeks I was alone here charging down the ski tracks in the Nordic forest, attributed by the breathtaking views relaxing in front of the fireplace. In Fryksås appeared the total peace, presence and joy of life that I needed. This was also the first time I realized that I need share this place with the world. When I came to the World Championships I was full of energy and in the best shape of my life. Together with my team mates we took the silver medal in ski relay.
In my sports career, I have learned that nothing is left to chance. If there is a will, there is a way. Only the very best is good enough.
The same mindset is obvious to me when I create holiday homes. You deserve getting the best experience there is in this short lifetime that we have.
Quality always comes first.
Welcome to discover my hidden gem in Fryksås. I look forward to have you as a guest.
