This area has the most outstanding view over the lake and surrounding area! There is a restaurant and amazing gift shop with traditional hand made items from the area. If you go up to the tower the view is even more incredible.

Good views over lake Siljan, unfortunate the cafe is only open in the summer. Short drive from town center.

Fantastic views of Lake Siljan and certainly worth the climb, and the drive out of Rattvik. Please note, there is no lift, so not suited to those with mobility difficulties.

Visit Vidablick if you want to have a nice view over Siljan. It's a lot of stairs, but so worth it. You have to pay to get up, but it's not much. The tower it self is not especially nice.. They should renovate the tower...More

Vidablick is situated in Rattvik in Dalecarlia. It gives you an excellent view over Lake Siljan and all its beautiful surroundings. You can chose to stay on the ground or climb the tower. I was there on a hot day, so stayed below. Got great...More

Accessible by bus, though we had to walk 30 mins (slow walk while enjoying the view!) to reach Vidablick on foot. A pleasant hike up. Great view from the tower!
