Orsa Hostel

Hostel Orsa

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Come and stay surrounded by alpine skiing facilities and cross-country skiing trails, living mountain grazing huts and Björnpark. The accommodation at the Orsa hostel is comfortable and gives amazing views across Lake Orsasjön and the blue-tinged mountains of Dalarna. The hostel has rooms with two beds and larger rooms, and a self-catering kitchen.

Orsa is one of the smallest municipalities in Dalarna but still has almost everything you could want. The hostel is located in Berget, approximately 500 meters from the E45, with an ice rink, exercise trails and lit ski trails on the doorstep. The shallow waters of lake Orsasjön and its wonderful sandy beaches are ideal for swimming, fishing, hiking, bowling or just enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

In the winter there are miles of marked trails for cross-country skating or cross-country skiing starting from the hostel or at the Grönklitt ski center. The ski center also has excellent downhill skiing facilities. A visit to Grönklitt Rovdjurscentrum with its Siberian tigers, wolves, Swedish brown bears and considerably larger Kamchatka brown bears, and other large wild animals is a must while you’re in Orsa.

Things to see and do near/at hostel:
• Bear Park and Wildlife Centre
• Bowling at Orsa Camping
• Ice rink at the hostel
• Long-distance skating on Lake Orsa
• Bicycle and walking trails by the hostel
• Orsa-acid, the largest street festival in July.
