"A Plethora of Photo Opportunities"

An invitation from one of our readers.

Landscapes? Northern Lights? Flora & Fauna? Dog-Sleigh Rides & Winter Sports? World-class fishing? We’ve got them all at our idyllic, rural, location in Swedish Lapland. Even better, after an exhilarating day of adventure, you can relax in front of a log fire, or enjoy your own private outdoor sauna!


 
Your S/C holiday home-from-home is a traditional Swedish wooden house set in its own large garden. It’s fully-equipped for 6 people and has a secluded veranda where you can enjoy a quiet sundowner and perfect peace. There's free wifi, free parking, and bbq gear is provided.



Come and crunch along the frozen river, carrying your supplies for the day in a traditional “spark” (sledge); or in the summer months borrow our little rowing boat and catch your own dinner from the unspoilt Vindelälven River, just a stone’s throw from your door. We’re on hand to help you get the most from your holiday so come and join us – build an igloo, enjoy a stunning environment, or stay a little longer and perhaps write that book!
