Beginners Hike

Through the Swedish Tourist Association's project Nybörjartur, we invite you students to an easy hike. During the hike, there will be several stops where you will receive practical information about hiking in nature. ​

 

The purpose of the beginner's tour is to offer opportunities where people who are not experienced in the outdoors can gain knowledge about hiking and outdoor life - preferably close to home! The goal is that the individual with the new knowledge should feel an increased sense of security staying in the forest and land. ​

A day on the ice

February 17 was the time for the annual winter activity. This time the bus, like last year, went to Sjösidan near Främby Udde.

 

The idea was for the students to try cross-country skating, but due to over-ice this was not possible. Instead, the students got to try touring skis, snowshoes, pimpling and a sauna with an ice bath. Lunch was served in a tent hut where vegan gulsch was heated over a live fire.

 

There were many happy faces at the end of the day when it was time for the bus to go home again.

5 & 6 February

Inspirational lecture - Discover Dalarna

During the lunch break, Dalarna University students had the opportunity to take part in an inspirational lecture "Discover Dalarna". Visit Dalarna shared the best of Dalarna for 30 minutes. The students were invited to pizza and drinks. ​

 

The purpose of the activity is to inspire students to discover Dalarna on their own.

River race

The first edition of the students' river race, part of the introductory weeks for the new students.

Despite the rain and a strong flowing Falu river, the mood was at its best and a lot of cheering for their classmates echoed across the center of Falu.

A total of 12 teams took part in the competition, and after a group stage, two even and thrilling semi-finals awaited where Internationals Falun and STUP 2 progressed to the final where STUP 2 finally won after a strong final sprint.

We at Student Dalarna thank Human By Nature for good cooperation in the planning before the competition and in the implementation, as well as everyone else who pitched in in some way both before, during and after the canoe race.

Carl Larsson Gården

The students were welcomed to accompany the super celebrities Carl and Karin Larsson home! The Carl Larsson farm in Sundborn is an icon in Swedish home decor and family life. The Carl Larsson farm has followed the Larsson family through generations and is managed by Carl and Karin Larsson's family association. The family association works to preserve the farm as a home and keep Carl and Karin's work alive.

The activity was very much appreciated and many of the students had no idea that the Carl Larsson farm was so close. The event had a limited number of seats and sold out in just a few days.

A day on the ice

During one day, the students had the opportunity to try different activities on the ice: Cross-country skating, kicking and ice fishing. Vegan goulash was offered in our Camp. Runn showed his best side when there wasn't a cloud in the sky. In order to offer the students a round-trip bus from the student accommodation in Borlänge and Falun, we had a maximum of 50 seats. These seats sold out very quickly.
