Every now and then, our energy reserves need a top-up. So, the next time you are running low, head to Dalecarlia Hotel in the picturesque village of Tällberg in central Sweden. Here, a serene experience for both body and soul is on offer – with every part of your wellbeing taken care of.

Whether the gloomy winter months are getting you down or the strain of everyday life is taking its toll, a visit to Dalecarlia is just what the doctor ordered. The exclusive destination is one of Sweden’s first ever spas, opened in 1995, and has the grand Lake Siljan as its backdrop. Peaceful and tranquil, this is the ultimate place to rewind and reboot.

Today, Dalecarlia offers a range of packages to suit every need, including dining, wellbeing and event experiences, and is also a popular venue for conferences and weddings. The venue celebrates local history and tradition, and seamlessly mixes these references with modern style and luxury – a concept that has established the hotel and spa as a leader in its field.

Time to spa

The spa at Dalecarlia attracts visitors from all over the place, throughout the year. It was renovated to a great extent back in 2021, to match the needs of the modern spa-goer, and now offers something for everyone. This includes professional treatments, a fitness centre, pool, whirlpool, shared sauna with views of Lake Siljan, and an outdoor hot spring. Just imagine stepping out onto the terrace on a cold winter’s morning, to ease yourself into a warm body of water, all while soaking up the stunning surroundings. It is true bliss.

The spa itself is beautifully housed in a separate building encompassing wooden details and panoramic windows that make the most of the unique views of Lake Siljan. There is also a bar offering light snacks and drinks, as well as a shop with exclusive spa products.

“It is wonderful to be able to serve guests this space, allowing them plenty of room to relax and rewind,” says hotel manager Ann-Louise Gustafsson. “We sometimes describe it as a temple of health, because that is essentially what it is,” she adds. The only problem visitors will encounter is deciding which part of the spa to enjoy next.

A taste (and sip) of Dalarna

According to Gustafsson, the best way to round off a day of treatments and self-care is to pop by Dalecarlia’s in-house restaurant and bar (not necessarily in that order). The restaurant serves healthy and nourishing food, made with local produce, while carefully blended with innovation and tradition. Cooking with the season is at the heart of the restaurant’s offering and everything on the menu can be enjoyed alongside expertly matched drinks recommended by Dalecarlia’s sommelier.

Indeed, there is also Bar Leffler, for those who fancy a drink or two in a relaxed setting. “Our salon is a natural meeting place where you can sit down in an armchair by the fire and enjoy great music from jazz to pop,” says Gustafsson. Every morning, a grand breakfast buffet is served in the hotel’s dining room, offering everything you might need to start the day in the best possible way.

Green Key certified

Dalecarlia is proud to have been awarded the prestigious Green Key eco-label – a leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operations in the tourism industry.

A Green Key represents an establishment’s promise to its guests, that by opting to stay with them, they help to make a difference by supporting its green agenda. The high environmental and sustainability standards expected of these businesses are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent audits.

“For us, it is important that guests know that we run Dalecarlia with the environment as a top priority, and that we treat this as an ongoing task,” explains Gustafsson. Efforts include reducing water and energy consumption, choosing renewable sources, recycling where possible and using eco-labelled products throughout the establishment.

So, why not pay Dalecarlia a visit this autumn or winter, and discover it all for yourself?
