This is also where Wäsabergen, a ski and activity center, is situated,
thus a perfect starting-point for summer as well as winter activities, e.g.
canoeing, climbing, cycling, fishing and skiing. The top of the mountain
Väsagnupen offers an amazing view overlooking Älvdalen, the river
Österdalälven and Lake Siljan in the distance. The beautiful scenery can
also be seen from the cafe located here.

Älvdalen, situated only a few kilometers from Älvdalen. Älvdalen´s
oldest carpentry works is located here, as well as the New Porphyry Works,
