Starting point of the Vasaloppet in Sälen, Dalarna, Sweden (Sverige). The Vasaloppet is Swedens longest and biggest cross-country ski event, 90 km (56 miles) from Sälen in a mountain area to Mora at Lake Siljan. The event takes place every year at the first Sunday of March. The historic Vasaloppet was in 1520, when two ski-men went after future Swedish king Gustav Vasa and returned with him to Mora to let him lead the resistance against the then Danish occupiers.
