This Swedish site is nicely named. For adventure of all flavours is all around Johannisholm Adventure in Dalarna County, set in a land of snowy, watery and adrenalised activities all within easy reach.
You can be out from dusk to dawn in all seasons here, tackling canoeing, quad biking, hiking, climbing, archery or mountain hiking… and having a go in the winter months at skiing, sledging, ice fishing, curling, snowmobiling or – rather fab – daytime ice sculpturing or guided lantern walks by night...
And when you're taking a break from all that and unwinding back at base? A hot tub and sauna with traditional woodfired heating awaits on site: although you could still be adventurous here by following in the Swedish tradition of going straight from sauna to plunge pool – or a roll in the winter snow for the truly hardy.
Ping pong tables and a sports area with football pitch, volleyball and basketball courts are also on site. For fortification (essential with all that outdoor activity), you can have a bite in the café or a sup in the bar, pick up some fresh pastries and bread for the next day's brekkie, or use the grill hut or many barbecue areas for hot stuff under the Swedish sky.
An amenities block with toilets and showers; a washing-up area and a washing machine are also on site.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

As you may have gathered by now, this Swedish setting is tiptop for outdoor pursuits. The Johannisholm Adventure owners arrange all sorts of guided tours on land and water for guests – and if they don't do it themselves, they'll know who does.
Another top outdoor Swedish spot is the town of Mora 35 kilometres away, the finish point of Vasaloppet, the longest and oldest cross country skiing race in the world. More placidly, the town is also known for its crafts, Mora knives and the Zorn Museum, housing the world's biggest collection of the works of Anders Zorn (if you dig the French Impressionists, you'll probably like his stuf too).
On the Gesunda Mountain south of Mora is Tomteland, a splendidly festive Santa Claus theme park set where Swedish legend has as the setting of Mr Claus's workshop. And a bit further at an hour's drive is Leksand Sommarland, the big family waterpark on the shore of Lake Siljan.
