Dalsland is a province in West Sweden and is often described as Sweden in miniature. It borders Norway to the west and Lake Vänern to the east. Dalsland is home to the village of Håverud and Dalsland Canal, considered one of the most beautiful canals in Europe. The accessible nature makes Dalsland a great place for outdoor activities like canoeing, boating and cycling.
