The village of Mockfjärd stands in the rural heart of Sweden to the north west of the capital Stockholm. The region is known as Dalarna, meaning The Valleys, which describes the rolling countryside around Mockfjärd. The village itself grew up either side of a bridge over the Västerdalalven River. Hire a car in Mockfjärd to explore the Dalarna area. You'll find lakes, forest and farmland between the market towns and villages, with plenty of opportunities to fish, walk and gaze at the unspoilt countryside. The nearest city is Borlänge, 2 miles east, which offers historic houses, modern shopping and dozens of restaurants.
There's a pretty whitewashed church, a mini golf course and quiet streets of painted wooden houses, but don't expect too many bright lights in this small rural community. If you hire a car in Mockfjärd you'll be able to explore a bit further afield. One of the best local attractions is the Old Homestead Museum near the river. This is an original red-painted wooden 19th-century farm preserved for visitors. You'll find more than 3,000 everyday farm objects on display here which should give you a real feel for the rural history of the village.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
