The Village Orsa
The village of Orsa is located on the north-eastern shore of the 53 km² large Lake Orsa (Orsasjön). Through a southern water passage it is connected with one of Sweden's largest lakes: Siljan.
By the shores of Orsasjön the Orsa Camping was inaugurated in 1932. With a kilometer long sandy beach, it has received several awards for its quality and beauty, and is by some referred to as the Dalarna Riviera.
Nature sights include the Grönklitt mountain, that houses a notable bear park and skiing hill. The bear park is an enclosed area where not only bears but also wolves, lynx, siberian tigers and wolverines reside, and is the biggest bear park in northern Europe.
