Combine fresh air with indoor activities such as spa treatments, swimming, shopping, bowling, and going the gym or cinema.

Bathing, bowling, browsing

Tired, more tired, most tired – often this is a lovely, contented feeling after a whole day in the mountains – and is when it’s wonderful to be pampered in the spa or warm up in a bubble pool.

If the weather really isn’t on your side, then spending a full day browsing the shops, watching films and bowling might feel like a good idea.


An adventure pool, hot tub or lake? Or why not a hole in the ice or the bathtub in your cabin? Whether it’s summer or winter, Sälenfjällen offers a wealth of ways to warm up after a day on the slopes or to cool down after a day’s hiking in the mountains.

We have one of the Nordic region’s most exciting adventure pools in Sälenfjällen, bedded in a thrilling marine environment. It has something for every taste: indoor surfing for the adventurous or a number of shallow pools for the very youngest. FlowRider® and the X-tube water slide are the first of their kind in Sweden and, along with waves, currents and the Black Steel Hole chute, they offer an adrenaline-filled bathing experience.

If you want a slightly smaller poolarium there are several to choose from, with bubble pools, pools and saunas at a number of our centres.


Enjoy your free time and let someone else look after you for a while. Have a manicure, a wonderful facial, restyle your hair or a get much-needed massage after a day’s skiing. We offer high-class treatments from professional therapists who will pamper you body and soul.

If you still have energy to spare after a day on the slopes or our cross-country trails, take a session or two in one of our top quality gyms. Being best or first on the cross-country trails needs training, so try our double poling machine as preparation for the Vasaloppet ski marathon.


Sporting goods, interior design, groceries or a souvenir from Sälenfjällen. Shopping means different things to different people. For some people, one of the best things about a holiday is finding something to take home to remind them of their trip and what they did. For others, shopping is simply something they have to do to make sure that there’s food in the fridge when their stomach starts rumbling after a day of outdoor adventures.
Whatever type of shopper you are, Sälenfjällen has a variety of sports gear, food and souvenirs.

The village of Sälen has a broad range of shopping and services, and exploring it during your stay is a must-do.



At the aquarium, Sälenakvariet, you can follow Västerdalälven from mountain to sea. Our unique flowing water aquarium displays beautiful salmon in the amazing aquatic environment of Västerdalälven. You can encounter brown trout, char, brook trout and rainbow salmon in their natural environment, as well as meeting common Swedish species, such as pike, perch and roach, eye to eye in our aquarium. Depending on the season, a number of other species found in Västerdalälven will also visit.

Sälenakvariet also offers thrilling encounters with Nordic fauna and the Nordic wilderness.


What could be more fun than challenging your family and friends to a bowling match? In the evenings, the Experium bowling hall transforms into a riot of colour when the lanes are lit in neon and disco bowling begins.



Settling down in the darkness of the cinema, eating freshly-popped popcorn and watching an exciting film is great relaxation for children and adults, both day and night. Our two cinemas – Vinterpalatset and Experium – offer 3D viewing and the latest digital technology.
