Billingen is one of Västergötland’s plateau mountains and offers an outstanding beautiful nature in all seasons. Billingens leisure area offers a variety of activities and adventures in both summer and winter. There are several miles of hikingtrails, and in the wintertime they transform into beautiful white sparkling skitrails. When the snow covers the ground, more than 40 kilometers of skitrails are prepared. There are also great skitracks with artificial snow and in the end of 2018 there will be a skitrack that is 10 km long! Billingen is located in the same climate zone as southern Dalarna, which means that we have a relatively snowproof area.The billingebadet outside swimmingpool is known to have Sweden’s most beautiful view, and it´s located just 200 meters from Hotel Billingehus. In clear weather you can see all the way to Östergötland.
