In the centre of the country, including the areas surrounding Stockholm and Dalecarlie, there are many lakes, waterfalls and rapids, which will delight the most dedicated fishing and canoeing enthusiasts. Dalecarlie is the where the Fjälls begin, in a range of wild mountains. In this part of the country, only two cities have more than 100,000 inhabitants, the other areas are mostly villages consisting of chalets, where tradition and folklore remain deeply entrenched.
