Dalarna adjoins Härjedalen, Hälsingland, Gästrikland, Västmanland and Värmland. It is also bounded by Norway in the west.

A few historically notorious rebellions started in the Dalarna province, with perhaps the most famous in 1519–1523 when Gustav Vasa found his first and staunchest supporters among the miners in his revolt against the Kalmar Union under the Danish King Christian II.
