The Leksand Folk High School just three hours from Stockholm and Arlanda airport is located by lake Siljan in one of Dalarna’s most genuine and beautiful cultural surroundings. The view over lake Siljan and the East Dala River is wonderful.
The accommodation and the school buildings are gathered like a small village with a main building, reception, theory classrooms and a dining hall. The rooms are very well equipped and the traditional style of the buildings gives the school a pleasant atmosphere.
In a nearby building you will find workshops for the courses.
