Full description

Swedish Lapland offers a wealth of unique and fantastic arctic experiences for the adventurous traveller. Many locations and holiday choices in this area offer something special, and Arctic Retreat is no exception. It is a hidden gem amongst the backdrop of wilderness heaven, and the creation of a local family with dreams of creating the perfect arctic getaway.

Located 1 hour from the arctic town Lulea, a guided private transfer heads inland to the Råne River valley area, with picture postcard fir and birch trees showing the way to your destination. Arctic Retreat will welcome you with a warm and friendly handshake, the feeling you’re in safe hands for an amazing arctic wilderness adventure.

There are just 4 cabins for accommodation, sleeping from 2 to 4 people and furnished in typically Scandinavian fashion and quality. Each of the cabins has panoramic windows for aurora watching; a private outdoor Jacuzzi in three of them; private bathroom; fireplace and firewood and coffee machine. On site there is a separate building with wood fired sauna (included).

A key feature at Arctic Retreat is the cuisine – Swedish style home cooking is the foundation of the menu, using the best local ingredients including fish, game, vegetables, berries and mushrooms from the region and prepared using recipes from the Swedish and Sami cultures to create fantastic dishes. All meals are included in your stay (excludes alcoholic beverages). Breakfast and dinner are served in the cosy timber Getronosan Restaurant. Lunch is usually provided in connection with a midday activity outside of the lodge.

In winter there is a fantastic range of activities, led by local partners and provide a high level of service. They range from husky sledding tours, snowmobile safaris, snow shoe walks, moose safari, cross country skiing, visiting a Sami family and northern light trips.

Arctic Retreat is the perfect choice for a high quality, intimate and cosy log cabin break, offering great personal service and authentic experiences and if you wish to widen your arctic adventures further we recommend an extra night or two at the inspiring Treehotel nearby, with just seven individual rooms elevated among the forest trees for a special stay in Swedish Lapland.
