Winter Wonderland Sweden











I'm not sure what to add. The photos speak for themselves... We spent our last 48 hours of our Sweden visit over New Year in this incredibly charming village Järvsö, only 3 hours+ drive north from Stockholm.  Lets put it this way, all my kids wanted to move there!!! And me too! That is how much they loved it. Luca Bo entered the hill when the lifts opened and I didn't see him until they closed after the last run. I strolled around in the cute village, looked at the beautiful Swedish houses, dreaming away of living in one... Preferably with a big veranda... Oh yes. A big glassed in veranda on a red house with white corners... Geraniums on the window sills in summer, fairy lights in winter...

Hot crépes and chocolates has never tasted better than on the hill by a burning fire. Being outside all day gave us all rosy cheeks and the crisp air filled us with energy. We stayed in the cutest little red cottage with bunk beds. Just perfect. Our surroundings looked like a picture from a fairy tale... Driving back to the airport through this divine landscape actually felt like driving through Narnia. I would love to come back for a longer visit. So much more to see, to do, to experience. So tasteful. So traditional. So refreshing. I'm not surprised by the slogan used to advertise this location: "Järvsö - Always. Beautiful. Nearby. " It sums it up. We will be back, I'm sure.

    1. Hi Stel
      Yes. The red cottages and houses in the white landscape. When driving they were everywhere. Hard to catch through a car window for Nelly Bo... I could have stopped every few hundred meters to take pictures, but then we wouldn't get there...:D :D :D I so love, love, love the Swedish red houses. It is my dream.

    1. Hello Namari
      How nice with visits from South Africa here. Stel (above) is also from there. Every place on earth has their own beauty. Going to Africa is on my wish list for destinations. Would love to go and explore your culture and nature. Very interesting and exotic in my eyes. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

  12. Åh har ni varit till Järvsö och åkt skidor?!!! Det är inte långt från vår lilla stad! Visst är det vackert här i Hälsingland, hoppas ni får chansen att åka tillbaks. Själv åker jag inte slalom så till själva backen har jag faktiskt inte varit....än....Men hela lilla Järvsö är ju så fint både sommar och vinter.
    Kram/ Nettan :)
