Located in the charming town of Överkalix about an hour and a half from Luleå, this hotel offers 60 spacious en suite rooms in the main building, some with a private balcony for aurora watching. There are also two suites complete with private sauna.

Along the river’s edge, around 300m from the main building, are six semi-detached Aurora Cabins accommodating 2-4 people. Each has two bedrooms and a living room with TV.

The resort also features a charmingly renovated villa with features dating back to the 17th century and sleeping 8-12 people in six bedrooms. There is also a living room and lounge area with a fireplace.

The hotel features two saunas, an indoor Jacuzzi and a lounge and bar ideal for relaxing after a day outside. The main restaurant overlooks the river and serves locally-sourced dishes. There is also a riverside wood heated sauna and an outside hot tub, both at an additional cost.
