Länsmansgården Vandrarhem in Särna, Sweden
Särna, in Dalarna – or Dalecarlia, heart of Scandinavia – surrounded by mountains, forests and waters, is the first and most accessible wilderness area in Sweden for those coming from the south, suitable for any kind of tourism. It’s a perfect starting point for an active vacation in the nature in any season of the year, and for nature enthusiasts, birdwatchers, photographers as well as for outdoor winter sports and activities.
Länsmansgården Vandrarhem (hostel) is located in the village, in a quiet spot with a 4.000 sqm garden, just 200 m far from the lake and the town’s main services. It provides 10 rooms on two floors; rooms are all private (no dorm). The accommodation is self catering, the guests can freely use a kitchen complete with accessories, and a wide dining room

 

Exuvia Photo, nature and wildlife photos and books by an ethical photographer  “I do not like “photo-safari” or “photo-hunting”, and I mean here that kind of approach where the focus is on the “competitive”, I would rather say “predatory”, side of wildlife photography. An animal should never be considered as a prey, even in a camera viewfinder, because it would eventually get the same status reserved to preys: an object less important than the aim, recreational goods to which no respect is due.”  Vitantonio Dell’Orto
