Traditional “Segra Sacun”

This famous village fair is a favorite festival amongst locals, designed to kiss summer goodbye and inaugurate autumn with a bang.

Be sure to buy the girl that caught your eye a decorated pear - per tradition, that's how you win her heart!

Chestnuts and wine

"Törggelen" is a tradition that takes place every autumn. During October, restaurants and mountain huts throughout the valley offer delicious traditional meals that remind us of older times, accompanied by wines from local producers.

You can even pick and roast your own chestnuts if you can find the right trees!
